NEXUS has just returned home from the whirlwind that is the Percussive Arts Society’s International Conference (PASIC) in Indianapolis. Garry Kvistad found an interesting email in his in-box from his cousin in Chicago: a great article from the Arizona Republic. Do you think the triangle is a “no-brainer” kind of percussion instrument? Check out this article!
NEXUS member Bill Cahn has a lecture/demonstration available on small percussion instruments that includes the triangle. He covers approaches and techniques, and includes recorded examples from the standard symphonic repertoire with simultaneous live performance. His lecture/demo also covers cymbals, tambourine, wood block and tam tam/gong. Small is beautiful!
