Time Travelers, a new percussion ensemble that features Ian David Rosenbaum, Gwen Burgett, Ayano Kataoka and Svet Stoyanov, came together in 2012 to perform and record Paul Lansky’s Threads for Bridge Records. The success of this project led to their first commissioning initiative: a new percussion quartet from rising composition star Andy Akiho. This piece is Akiho’s first for percussion quartet, and Time Travelers will premiere it at venues across the United States in April 2013. They are funding the commission for this project through the great Kickstarter.
The campaign needs $7,000 in 8 days time–They have made over $2,400, but they need your help, so, please check them out! There is a video of the pitch for the campaign on the link below, but right here is a video of Akiho and Rosenbaum performing another one of Andy’s original pieces:
