Loop 2.3.4, the improvisational percussion ensemble, will perform at HWS on March 26, at 8 p.m. in the Geneva Room. Loop 2.3.4 is comprised of the creative duo of virtuosic percussionists and composers Thomas Kozumplik and Lorne Watson.
The group is most popular for its energetic performances and creative approach to transcending the expectations of traditional genres. Their music resonates with flavors of jazz, rock and roll, and contemporary classical chamber music, yet is unique enough to avoid falling into any one of these categories.
Following the duo's first album-which was released when the group was known as the New York Percussion Duo and their work was primarily percussion-they decided to branch out and include writings in electronics, voices and strings. In addition to the added versatility, the group has also collaborated with a collection of bands including the Clogs, Newband, and Belle Orchestre, among many others.
Loop 2.3.4 has performed for radio, theater and television, including The Learning Channel and MTV, and has appeared at the Sydney Festival, the London Jazz Festival, Merkin Hall, Carnegie Hall and the Japan Society (NYC) among others.
This concert is one of several on-campus performances sponsored by the HWS Music Department set to take place throughout the spring semester.
Admission to the performance is free, though donations will be accepted.
