UZUME TAIKO DRUM GROUP SOCIETY presents a collaboration project:
with Max Murphy on wind instruments & electronic music
Friday and Saturday July 6th & 7th, 2018 @ 8PM
Annex Theatre in Vancouver
Taiko M.A.D., Uzume Taiko's latest live and at home in Vancouver concert is a collaborative work of taiko drumming, wind instruments and electronic music where earthly taiko drums and percussion instruments pair with ethereal melodic wind instruments and driving rhythmic electronic music. The mythological Japanese "Oni" characters add mischief to the scene. The 60-minute Concert will be presented at the Annex Theatre on July 6 & 7, 2018.
The evening's repertoire will include remix tracks of Uzume's repertoire, new taiko drum compositions, and new taiko and percussion compositions using live wind instruments and electronic pads.
Uzume Taiko musical director Jason Overy notes, "Max Murphy and I have been music colleagues for the past twenty years in our careers working with musicians and contemporary dancers in the Vancouver music and dance communities. This will be Uzume Taiko's first in-depth collaboration with taiko drums and electronic music." Max Murphy is a Toronto born, Vancouver raised multi instrumentalist and electronic musician. He has performed, toured and recorded with a diverse array of local acts such as Battery Opera, Five Alarm Funk, Buckman Coe, and Jazz Pianist Paul Plimley.
This project is made possible with the support of the City of Vancouver the Vancouver Civic Theatres and the Province of B.C..
