  • Rudiments for Hexadrome is a sound performance and installation (installed at VIVO Media Arts Centre in July 2021) that considers the sonic qualities and compositional possibilities of the snare drum using graphic scores.

    Six percussionists perform on six snare drums to explore their resonant materials, rhythms and lineages. By experimenting with graphic notation, instructional scores, extended techniques, snare drum modifications and improvisation, Adrian Avendaño, John Brennan, César Chew, Mili Hong, Jamie Lee and Jennifer Yakamovich, propose new sonic configurations while making space for past, present and future sounds to emerge.
