U of T Percussion Ensemble - Drumming [excerpt]

Full review to follow. Closing out the day-long festival was this full performance of Steve Reich's famous percussive piece. Starting with about a quarter hour of shifting-pattern drums, this section follows the shift to marimba and vibes, textures enfolding over themselves like a comfy blanket.
