Show location on map
An evening of drumming by the celebrated ensemble Sō Percussion and composer/percussionist John Colpitts's experimental drum project Man Forever. Coined New York City's "experimental powerhouse" by the Village Voice, Sō Percussion is America's premiere modern percussion ensemble. Sō brings their adventurous spirit to the Met Museum to explore the DIY and experimental components of punk.
John Colpitts (aka Kid Millions) is a Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, composer and writer who is perhaps best known as the drummer for Oneida. Man Forever is his vehicle for exploring the outer limits of drum experimentation and performance. Since 2010, Man Forever has released two full-length albums and two live recordings.
These concerts are presented in association with Wordless Music, and in conjunction with the exhibition PUNK: Chaos to Couture, on view May 9–August 11, 2013. This concert is made possible in part by Isabel C. Iverson and Walter T. Iverson.
Ages 7 -16
