about

In his debut recording as a composer, Brooklyn-based percussionist and sound artist Adam Holmes set out to create a program of enormous sound with maximum portability. The result is Compartments, a collection of trance-like percussion works featuring instruments which seldom get the spotlight – mini gongs, flower pots, and wood blocks – all illuminated by interactive live processing designed alongside Max Ardito.

Compartments is an artistic exercise in curiosity and vulnerability, with Holmes working through the sonic characteristics of these tiny percussion instruments on his own terms. The expanding and contracting sounds in Compartments unfold in at a meditative pace over perpetually active yet minimal structures.
