Notes and Editorial Reviews

Masters at crafting alluring sonic landscapes from the most unlikely found objects, So Percussion explores the idea of home with bold experiment in collaborative art-making. Where (we) live is a multi-media, multi-artist, fully-staged theatrical event and album featuring music written by Brooklyn-based quartet So Percussion (Adam Sliwinski, Eric Beach, Jason Treuting, Josh Quillen) and special guest singer/songwriter/guitarist Grey McMurray (itsnotyouitsme, (k)nights on earth). A celebration of community and collaboration, Where (we) Live is an exploration of So's outermost artistic boundaries, as well as a re-examination of comfort zones.

"For eight years, So Percussion has made our home in Brooklyn amid two million
Read more five hundred thousand others. In our city, each of the group's four members has constructed a personal ecosystem we call home. These homes are bound by space, time, sound and image. Equally, these spaces house rewarding, frustrating, supporting, damaging, tangible and never understood relationships. When we leave those homes, our four members unite to create another artistic home, with its own unspoken rules and expectations; its own rhythm of interaction, it's own banalities and mystery. Where (we) Live questions all these homes by purposefully inviting the unknown to 'come on over'."
