Microphones, music stands, lights, cables, a thousand mallets. Plus the instruments - some of them large (marimbas, drum kits, cymbals, a gong, a piano), and some of them found objects (pipes, empty whiskey bottles, a string of paperclips). And the artists themselves: Rob, Pete, Sean, David, all with earpieces plugged in and playing in perfect syncopation. Third Coast Percussion is a complete sensory experience. A few weeks ago, they gave me free range on stage at the University of Chicago's Logan Center for the Arts during their dress rehearsal with one directive: get all four musicians in one frame. The solution was a multiple exposure frame created in the camera; it also captured the organized chaos of instruments.
