This past Saturday, Melissa Fogarty and Percussia performed Starfish at Pescadero at the Jackson Heights Branch of the Queens Public Library.
This performance made use of the revisions I did for the Coast Guard Academy performance last year, along with some new changes to the percussion part. This time, at the suggestion of Ingrid Gordon, we replaced both the tom-toms and wood blocks with temple blocks, which made the whole piece so much lighter and freer. I’m really happy with the new instrumentation.
Here, for your listening pleasure, is the recording that I made of Starfish at the concert.
Thanks to Missy and Percussia for such a fabulous performance!
