About the Performance  |

Music for marimba and electronics and amplified toy piano.

Baltimore composer David Smooke's music is about exploding boundaries in the continuing search for transcendence.

"Smooke has some of the most uninhibited brain cells around" -- The Washington Post.

Percussionist par excellence Jeff Stern returns to Baltimore to join David. Jeff is a founding member of the 2 piano/2 percussion group, Icarus Quartet, championing the repertoire’s staples as well as new works from great young composers of his generation. You could also have heard him play major venues like Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center.

Thrive No. 5 will include works by Pauline Oliveros, John Cage, David Smooke, and more...
