JOSEPH BERTOLOZZI & THE BRONZE COLLECTION
With this collection of gongs and cymbals from around the world, a unique, inter-cultural palette of his own design, Vic Firth Artist Joseph Bertolozzi is redefining concepts of melody, rhythm and texture with sounds rarely heard together in a unified context. Rhythmic instruments sing, melodic ones pulse, and other combinations exist simply as aural events. Emotionally, physically, the music moves you. Using custom mallets, drumsticks, brushes, foot pedals and a bow, Bertolozzi combines a discrete mix of high and low, bright and dark, short and sustained, pitched and unpitched gongs and cymbals with the addition of roto-toms into a new sonic world. Resembling a modern sculpture, it is an impressive sight to see as well as hear.
