A melancholy, simple, meditative composition written by Ron Tucker
for his chamber percussion group,
In a Crowded Room with Nothing to Think About by waltertucker
with my painting, Anxieties + Alienations
and a nice shirt...
ensemble, et al. is a Brooklyn-based pseudo-classical percussion ensemble
performing their debut here at Pelavin Gallery
during my solo exhibition, Conditions of Existence, October 2010
I am so honored and pleased to share this with them
The group combines the structure and instrumentation of classicism and modernism with an
emotional aesthetic commonly heard in post-punk-indie rock.
melancholy... meditative... reflective... minimal...
...a perfect flow...
Inspired by artists such as amiina, Clogs and Rachel's and influenced by contemporary
composers like Arvo Part, Philip Glass and Steve Reich, ensemble, et al.'s music aspires to be
simple, intimate, elegant and delicately beautiful.
Thank you, Ron
