March 8: The Smoke and Mirrors Percussion Ensemble

Created in 2009, Smoke and Mirrors aims “to use the simple tools of rhythm, pitch, and timbre in a complex manner to create intensely effective experiences, and, in the process, expand the public’s literacy in the percussion repertoire.” The ensemble champions the work of percussion masters such as John Cage, Lou Harrison, and Steve Reich, and also works with young composers, including members Derek Tywoniuk and Joe Beribak. Smoke and Mirrors has collaborated with the Colburn Orchestra, the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet, and the New West Symphony, and co-commissioned a new percussion trio from New York composer Robert Honstein. As supporters of music education, the ensemble has developed outreach programs and performed in schools throughout Los Angeles.
