TigueBrooklyn, NY NYC Impact Fund
Tigue is a group of three percussionists with a fluid musical identity. The Brooklyn-based trio (Matt Evans, Amy Garapic and Carson Moody) makes their own kinetic and hypnotic blend of instrumental minimalism while opening up the possibilities of their instrumentation through commissioning and collaboration. Recent commissions and premieres have included works by Paula Matthusen, Lea Bertucci, Elori Kramer, Molly Herron, Randy Gibson, Jason Treuting, Adrian Knight and Robert Honstein alongside collaborative ventures with Kid Millions and visual artist / sculptor Michael Mercil. These works have been presented in venues and universities throughout the country including EMPAC, Roulette, The deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Roulette, Noguchi Museum, Yale School of Music, and Princeton University. Praised for their focused and “high octane” performances (New York Times), the Ohio-born band members have worked together since they were practically children.

Lea Bertucci — Mass of Dissolution (2019)
Commissioned by the American Composers’ Forum and written for Tigue Percussion, 2019. Premiered 1/24/19 at The Kitchen, NYC. Mass of Dissolution is a new work commissioned by the American Composers’ Forum and written specially for the percussion trio Tigue. The piece is conceived of as an incantation against the blind violence of military-industrial power that dominates global dynamics; combining extended techniques for percussion with dislocated fragments of traditional American drum corps music.
