Continuum presents Resonant Bodies, the duo of trumpeter Stephanie Richards and percussionist Andrew Drury, performing at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, on Bainbridge Island, Washington, on Friday, February 2, at 7pm. This performance is Drury’s first on the island where Drury grew up in 35 years (!). Resonant Bodies will perform a full evening of work that includes some audience participatory music. There will be a reception after the performance with snacks and drinks for purchase and the Drury and Richards will sign cds and socialize.
Stephanie Richards’ warm, precise approach to trumpet and flugelhorn has led to work with Pulitzer Prize winner Henry Threadgill, Butch Morris, MacArthur “Genius” winners John Zorn and Anthony Braxton, and composer Helmut Lachenmann, while her interest in the physical and visual dimensions of live performance has led to collaborations with performance artists such as Mike Kelly, Laurie Anderson, and Yoko Ono. She has also performed with David Byrne, The Pixies, the Kronos Quartet, Kanye West, and Common. Stephanie is Assistant Professor of Music at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music, McGill University, California Institute of the Arts, and has held residency at Stanford University. Originally from Calgary, Alberta Richards splits her time between San Diego and New York.
Andrew Drury began playing drums in the 6th grade band at Commodore Middle School on Bainbridge Island and within a year knew that he wanted to make music his life path. Since graduating from Bainbridge High School in 1983 studied with legendary drummer Ed Blackwell and has performed and collaborated with artists in over 40 countries, recorded over 50 cds with artists such as Jason Kao Hwang, Myra Melford, Wadada Leo Smith, Michel Doneda, and many more. In addition to his accomplishments on the drum set Drury is a pioneer of innovative percussion techniques such as playing drums as wind instruments leading Hrayr Attain of All About Jazz to proclaim, “There is no doubt that Andrew Drury is one of most innovative and bold drummers on the modern music scene.” As a composer/bandleader Drury leads the quartet Content Provider whose debut cd was chosen as one of the “Top Ten CDs of 2015” by the NYC Jazz Record and the Drum/Bridge 10TET.
