High School band plays Endtroducing...


This video of a high school percussion band playing songs from DJ Shadow's Endtroducing.. is incredible. From the composer's website:

"In the Winter and Spring of 2005, I started the Shadow Percussion Project, where I attempted to adapt a few tracks off DJ Shadow's remarkable album Endtroducing for a live performance group. By mid-February I had arranged both Building Steam with a Grain of Salt and Changeling for Percussion Quintet. Eager to hear what these arrangements sounded like, I brought the music to the Minnetonka High School Percussion Ensemble, an extracurricular music program that I instruct. The students responded to the music positively, even though it was extremely challenging. After a few months of intense rehearsal, the students performed both tracks for a live audience on Monday, May 16 2005. The following video contains the final performance."

In other semi-related news, I recieved my Public Works package today. The only delemma is "Do I wear the shirts or try and save them??" But I know, no matter how hard I try and save them, I will end up wearing them all. Maybe I'll post some photo's of the unboxing if anyone cares.
