AMP is happy to be collaborating with the Albuquerque Museum to help virtualize their popular Third Thursday Events. Each month, the museum has a mix of talks, activities and live music in tandem with their current and ongoing exhibits. 

In the third of four consecutive Thursday concerts inspired by the "Trinity: Art of the Bomb" exhibit, Chatter offers a percussion program centered on James Tenney's "Pika-Don." This powerful work, commissioned by Christopher Shultis and the UNM Percussion Ensemble, is woven through recorded narratives of witnesses to the Trinity test and survivors of the attack on Hiroshima. This direct depiction of nuclear explosions and violence then broadens into reflection on environmental forces, with Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate's dramatic "Thunder Song" for solo timpani and John Luther Adams' "Qilyaun" for four bass drums—the latter titled after the Iñupiaq word for the shaman's drum, literally translating as "device of power."
