Caballito Negro + Left Edge Percussion: “Hammers, Sticks, Wind & Stones” @ Oregon Center for the Performing Arts, Ashland OR

Flute and percussion duo, Caballito Negro, alongside Left Edge Percussion, perform The Stone Tapestry, Jeff Herriott’s epic, shape-shifting work for flute and percussion soloists with percussion quartet. The Stone Tapestry weaves together myths about origins, life cycles, and the significance of change. Composed for flute and percussion soloists, plus percussion quartet, and employing a myriad of flutes, percussion, electronics, and video, the piece traces the path of just a few stones, from discovery to disappearance, in a ritualistic performance.

The concert also features a cheery work for  flute and percussion quartet, Hammers, by Allison Loggins-Hull.   It was inspired by the sounds of industrial construction in New York City, where the composer lives.
