Colouring of Pigeons / The Knife

Blown-Out (Cry, Oh Light!) (2010) by Adrienne LynchColouring of Pigeons / The Knife (with Planningtorock and Mt. Sims) from Tomorrow, In A Year [Mute, 2010]

For my master’s comprehensive exam one of my questions was to list and describe the most important works with percussion.  I put down Wipeout among my other answers. But I wasn’t just trying to be some smart-ass.  I’ve had serious identity problems as a percussionist.  Why doesn’t the music I listen to sound more like the music I perform?Along the way, this song reminded me that everything was going to be o.k.
