Evolution Percussion Duo is comprised of percussionists Maria Finkelmeier and Jacob Remington, and is currently based in Piteå, Sweden.

We’ve started this project to expand the current repertoire of duo music for percussion, and to highlight our generation's voice in the percussive arts. In order to do this, we are commissioning four great composers to write pieces for us. The composers we have chosen are:

Casey Cangelosi - www.caseycangelosi.com 

Dave Hall - www.dhallmusic.com 

Baljinder Sekhon - www.sekhonmusic.com

David Skidmore - www.davidskidmorepercussion.com

In addition to these commissioned works, we will each write our own piece and receive a work dedicated to us by Csaba Zoltán Marján in July. This brings the total number of new duo pieces to seven!

Once we reach our goal and the pieces are written, we will tour the US and Europe in Fall 2011 using the new works as the concert program. After the tour, we will come back to Piteå, and record the pieces and release our first CD!

We want this project to not only inspire musicians, but new audiences and listeners as well. This project will cross international boundaries while uniting cultures through the arts.
