CommissionsIlimaq + Martin Dosh Collaboration

Glenn Kotche

Experimental percussionist, composer, and Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche performs an epic percussion opera-as-solo performance combining 19 instruments, live electronics, and Alaskan field recordings. A richly layered new work by noted Alaska-based contemporary composer John Luther Adams and written expressly for Kotche, Ilimaq (Inupiaq for “spirit journeys”) melds the rigor of modern music with found sounds of the natural world. A collaboration between Kotche and Minneapolis-based percussionist/composer Martin Dosh combines loops, samples, and a battery of instruments to create a one-of-a-kind sonic mélange.
