Album Notes
Described by the New York Times as an ensemble possessing an "edgy, unflagging energy", the Talujon Percussion Quartet has been mesmerizing audiences since 1991. Talujon is thoroughly committed to the expansion of the contemporary percussion repertoire as well as the education and diversification of its worldwide audience.

Based in New York City, Talujon performs regularly for such highly regarded organizations as the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society, Bang on a Can, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, Harvard University the Percussive Art Society. Talujon has appeared in universities and concert halls throughout the U.S., and on such festivals as the Taipei Lantern Festival, Brooklyn Academy of Music Next Wave Festival, Chautauqua, California's Festival of New American Music, Bang on a Can Marathon and at the Percussive Art Society’s International Convention. Recently, Talujon has worked with composers Meredith Monk, Julia Wolfe and Eric Moe. This season, Talujon will tour Europe with Steve Reich and the Bang on a Can All-Stars.

For the Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concerts series, Talujon developed the program "A World of Influences", which incorporates Talujon group compositions featuring homemade instruments and traditional instruments from six continents. The group has also given Master classes/workshops at institutions such as the Julliard School, Long Island Children’s Museum, University of Buffalo and the University of Virginia

Talujon's CD, "...the speed of the passing time...", features the works of Xenakis, Harrison, Rzewski, Shapey and Talujon. The group's first CD, "Hum", includes live performances of works by Reich, Cage, Drummond, and Talujon.

Talujon is available for concerts, masterclasses, residencies, and workshops.
