Architek Percussion Quartet will tour of the Maritime Provinces from Oct. 5-12. It’s the first tour to this area for this dynamic young ensemble. They will be performing a program entitled Blips and Beats, which focuses on repertoire composed for or inspired by the drum kit, drawing on influences as diverse as rock, funk, death metal, avant-garde and minimalism.
The location of this tour is meaningful, as two members of the quartet are originally from the Maritime region. Based in Montreal, Architek Percussion Quartet formed at McGill University in 2011.
