From a Homestead HS (CA) Winter Percussion Press Release:
Homestead’s 2023 production is inspired by the dizzying patterns and impossible worlds of the artist M.C. Escher. Son Lux, Debussy and more lend their music to the mixture, bringing sonic life to the high-contrast imagery. The program begins with cold precision, evoking the repeating tessellations of Escher’s art with pulsing minimalism. Rigor rapidly yields to swells of emotion, creativity, and individual exploration. A featured saxophone soloist brings a unique color to the percussion ensemble, soaring above the group like Escher’s birds. The pattern repeats, evolves, and takes flight… moving ever forward along a journey to infinity.
