The Williams Percussion Ensemble and New Music Williams presents Sculptures in Time, a program that celebrates the visceral beauty of 21st-century music. This program includes music by Anna Meadors, Rüdiger Pawassar, Joe W. Moore III, Daniel T. Lewis, and Tawnie Olson. Matt Sharrock directs the ensemble.
In programs featuring cutting-edge new music and important works of the twentieth-century, the Williams Percussion Ensemble (WiPE) surveys a vast terrain of sound and rhythm. The ensemble employs all manner of percussion instruments, found sounds, and electronics to create music that resonates across boundaries of genre and discipline. In addition to music for percussion alone the group presents works for mixed ensembles and new and experimental music for a range of instruments. The ensemble often works directly with composers and collaborates with artists in diverse media in order to explore the connections between sound, form, image, and movement. WiPE strives to offer creative programming, innovative presentation, and immersive experiences in which the listener is invited to hear music in new ways.
