“Persistence” for Percussion Ensemble by The U.S. Army Band

1 min read

Born today in 1912, American composer John Cage revolutionized the percussion ensembles of the mid-1930s, bringing percussionists center stage instead of tucked behind the orchestra.

Of this original piece, Staff Sgt. Brian Blume writes, "Cage’s work has no doubt had an influence on my composition. Just the idea of creating percussion instruments and musical sounds from pretty much anything."

"Persistence" utilizes industrial equipment and bridges the gap between John Cage’s audiences of the early 1900s and today by providing a crowd-pleasing piece that is equal parts groovy and contemporary.
