RAY TO GO
Percussion Music for Dance
by Ray McNamara
"This project began at the request of dancers and choreographers who asked for a recording of music similar to what I play in class.
...After many requests, I decided to pursue a classroom type recording. I wanted the live interaction feeling that I got from working with dancers.
So with the help of Wendy Rogers, I started this project. We got together in the studio and talked about possibilities.
We then proceeded to have a mini class as I played through some ideas.
Wendy danced in the space and I recorded many of the tracks on this recording.
The result is a purely organic improvisation based on the interaction of musician and dancer.
All the tracks are intentionally long to facilitate classroom use.
They all maintain a consistent tempo and energy throughout, except track 11, the 'Textural Piece'." ... Ray McNamara
Features 11 long selections of percussion and Ray's unique steel drum style.
