A perfect collaboration between the composer-guitarist Bill Banfield and percussionist Tim Adams.

Tim Adams and Bill Banfield write, "This project was for us, two musician friends, a chance to make music together in the most organic way. Our first work was a collaboration with Bill composing a percussion concerto for Tim to play with the Indianapolis Symphony in 1996. But music with no boundaries, playing ideas based on initial reactions to what we heard, that seemed like music headed in the right direction. The other thing was the relationship of the various percussion instruments with the guitar. Here, percussion has a role equal to a solo voice, used thematically as well as harmonically. The guitar acts equally as harmonic, thematic and rhythmic accompaniment for the drums. This is interactive music. The conception of this recording was that we would base the music on the impulse of the percussion ideas, just like a master drummer informs an ensemble... By listening to this CD we hope you are able to stretch and listen to this music in some non-traditional ways and be able to enjoy the music, the creative process, the friendship and joy of making music as we do." You'll no doubt recognize William Banfield not only from his solo albums but from his symphonic works performed and recorded by many labels over the years. Tim Adams is heralded as one of the most dynamic and versatile percussionists today. He is professor of percussion at Carnegie-Mellon University and a member of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
