EXCEL Talk: Tigue

  1. Tuesday November 13 2:30pm
Earl V. Moore Building, EXCEL Lab (Room 1279)

Tigue is a group of three percussionists with a fluid musical identity. The Brooklyn-based trio (Matt Evans, Amy Garapic, and Carson Moody) make their own kinetic and hypnotic blend of instrumental minimalism while opening up the possibilities of their instrumentation through commissioning and collaboration. Tigue’s debut album Peaks was released in 2015 with New Amsterdam Records with highlighted performances at the Ecstatic Music Festival, Bric Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, and the Zemlika Festival in Durbe, Latvia. Recent commissions and premieres have included works by Molly Herron, Randy Gibson, Jason Treuting, Adrian Knight, and Robert Honstein alongside collaborative ventures with Kid Millions and visual artist/sculptor Michael Mercil. These works have been presented in concert halls, galleries, black box theatres and universities throughout the country, including EMPAC, Roulette, The deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Noguchi Museum, Yale School of Music, and Princeton University. Praised for their focused and “high octane” performances (The New York Times), the Ohio-born band members have worked together since they were practically children.
