Meridian (Tim Feeney/Nick Hennies/Greg Stuart)

November 1 - San Antonio, TX @ High Wire Arts

Meridian is the trio of Tim Feeney, Nick Hennies, and Greg Stuart is dedicated to the exploration of percussion through various non-traditional approaches. Drawing on their experience performing both improvised and composed works, the group approaches percussion in a way that places the exploration of sound in the foreground rather than a focus on rhythm, gesture, or technique. The trio is in the unusual position of having all its members eschewing their training as “classical” percussionists in favor of a musical approach that is primarily concerned with exploring acoustic phenomena rather than exercising their abilities as virtuosos. Meridian performs their own work alongside compositions by like-minded composers such as Peter Ablinger, Michael Pisaro, Antoine Beuger and others.
