Meet Third Coast Percussion, one of Denison’s Ensembles-in-Residence, following their concert where they will feature a performance of Oscar nominated Danny Elfman’s Percussion Quartet.

For over 30 years, four-time Oscar nominee Danny Elfman has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. Elfman has scored over 100 films as well as writing the iconic theme music for the television series “The Simpsons” and “Desperate Housewives”.

Elfman’s Percussion Quartet was written for Third Coast Percussion to premiere at Philip Glass’s “Days and Nights” Festival in Big Sur, California in October 2019. The quartet’s four movements loosely follow the structure of a traditional symphony, with a gentle, more lyrical second movement, and a dance-like third movement that combines the feel of a Shostakovich scherzo with sounds reminiscent of balofon and gamelan. Each movement maintains a steady energy while shifting rapidly between sounds, styles, and tempos. Elfman’s distinct voice is clearly recognizable throughout, in a slightly warped harmonic language, and moments of playfulness, mystery, and drama.
