Music for Acrolite Snare Drums, released August 2016, is a composition and performance project in which three percussionists compose and perform music that include only Acrolite snare drums. More than a toy but less than a professional instrument, Acrolite snare drums were first produced by Ludwig Drums in 1961, marketed to school band programs. While paying homage to the dying school music program, Music for Acrolite Snare Drums explores the rules and possibilities of minimalism, indeterminacy, world music and improvisation.
