Tired Blood

Album Notes

Minnesota-based percussionist and composer Zack Baltich approaches songwriting with a varied background, having played in rock bands his whole life while studying classical music. Utilizing percussive instruments (vibraphone, various drums, found objects) and a tiny synthesizer, his music encompasses a myriad of genres, exploring experimental sound in an accessible, relatable way. Whether it is 2017’s Cavernous, a year long endeavor in which Zack recorded four pieces in cave like environments throughout Minnesota, or 2016’s Ingress:Passage, a 35 minute post-rock inspired work, he finds footing in a combination of general curiosity, subject matter, and confluence of genre. Zack has been commissioned by the Cedar Cultural Center, American Composers Forum, and Minnesota State Arts Board; performed throughout the midwest; and was featured as a soloist at Queens New Music Festival in 2018 in New York City, and at Stanford University’s Musical Frames festival in 2019. Additionally, his music has been performed by others throughout the United States and as far as Mexico City.

Tired Blood is the first single from the forthcoming album "ingress:passage." This work cuts through the spectrum of genre and emotion - sometimes soft, sometimes harsh and overwhelming. For Marimba, Bass Clarinet, and Drums, "ingress:passage" is an amalgamation of new sounds and old sounds from the heart.
