PERPETULUM available March 29, 2019 from Orange Mountain Music Featuring music by Philip Glass, Gavin Bryars, and members of Third Coast Percussion Third Coast Percussion, GRAMMY winners for their 2016 album "Third Coast Percussion | Steve Reich", turn to Philip Glass, another composer known for music with repetitive structures, for their latest recording, released on Glass's label Orange Mountain Music. The centerpiece of the two-disc album is a brand-new work by Glass, "Perpetulum", which also gives the album its title. "Perpetulum" is Glass's first-ever work for percussion ensemble and was commissioned by Third Coast Percussion and a consortium of partners. It could be said that Glass, born in 1937, came of age at the same time as the percussion ensemble; John Cage's seminal work "Third Construction" was premiered when Glass was four years old. While his primary instrument was flute, Glass also played in the percussion ensemble as a young student at Baltimore's Peabody Preparatory
Instrument: Percussion
