About the Glass Percussion Project:

Amongst an innovative labryinth of glass instruments a live percussion performance will unfold around themes of air, wind, thunder, water, and divine melody. The Glass Percussion Project is a collaborative initiative between Glass Artist Elaine Miles and percussionist and composer Eugene Ughetti. Elaine Miles has hand blown a very large collection of glass that is resonant and both harmonically complex and pure. The event will feature glass percussion instruments of over 200 gongs, 250 bowls, 40 udu drums, various wind-chimes, bars and a collection of suspended sheets and shards.
