The Gemini boys really blew Portland away last year with their incredible performance. This year, they return as “Gemini 3,” promising to make it rain with a torrent of evocative music for percussion, featuring works by Alejandro Vinao, Andy Akiho, Toru Takemitsu, and Thierry de Mey.

Alejandro Vinao: Relative Riffs
"A rock or jazz riff is supposed to be a short melodic/rhythmic phrase that repeats unchanged, becoming more powerful with each repetition. By contrast, I have treated the riffs in this work as themes that develop and transform in time."
Andy Akiho: Empty Your Mind
Described as "mold-breaking," "alert and alive,"? "dramatic,"? and "vital"? by The New York Times, Andy Akiho is an eclectic composer and performer of contemporary classical music.
Toru Takemitsu: Rain Tree
Rain Tree is used as a metaphor of water circulating in the cosmos, and Takemitsu employed Messiaen’s modes of limited transposition in order to construct the pitch collections evocative of cosmic imagery.
Thierry de Mey: Musique de Table
Musique de Table by Thierry De Mey is a unique trio for three percussionists, each playing only on a table-like surface. This piece is both musical and visual, and is sure to entertain audiences with its quirkiness and inventiveness.

Gemini 3:
Jon Greeney, Percussion
Sergio Carreno, Percussion
Michael Roberts, Percussion
