On Tuesday, September 25th, So’s latest album “Where (we) Live” was released on Cantaloupe Music! So’s lucky 13th album is the culmination of 2 years of collaboration with the sensitive and wide-ranging songwriter Grey Mcmurray, well known for his music withitsnotyouitsme and Knights on Earth.
Following right after, on September 28-29, So will perform the world premiere at the Walker Art Center. Each performance of “Where (we) Live” is unique… a different guest artist appears with them each night. So far, these collaborators have included a ceramicist, a seamstress, a poet, and a blacksmith. The guest artists/artisans lend a fascinating aura to So’s usual presentation of music and video.
The performance also features Minneapolis-based choreographer Emily Johnson, and video by M.C. Schmidt of Matmos.
At the Walker, So will be performing with special guests Kate Farstad (Friday) & Zak Sally (Saturday).
BAM Next Wave Festival
So Percussion is honored to be participating in BAM’s 30th Next Wave Festival December 19-22 in the Harvey Theater.
So made their BAM Next Wave debut in 2009 with Imaginary City. This time their theatrical imaginations lead them away from the universal and towards the personal in “Where (we) Live”.
So is excited to be sharing this season’s line-up with lauded productions such as Einstein on the Beach, David Lang’s Love Fail,Michael Gordon’s Timber, and so many others.
