Tonight on Explorers Room: Skeleton Dance–Accent on Library Percussion
Tonight on Explorers Room, we'll spend a little time with library music, with a particular emphasis on percussion and the works of Eddie Warner, Patrice Sciortino, and Camille Sauvage (and thus, his close collaborators Roger Roger and Nino Nardini as well), among others. Not all of it is percussion-specific, and not all of those artists are percussionists per se, but all have a percussion record that serves as a jumping-off point before we wander off into huge funky breaks, dreamworld jazz, and rickety miniatures of the avant garde. A Modernist Skeleton Dance awaits your little ears. 7-9ish, as you know.
