Born to Be Wild

Owen Weaver performs adventurous, versatile, and portable solo percussion music which utilizes recycled objects and electronic sounds ranging from the visceral to the sublime, clangorous to hypnotic–to form a unique sound world. As a solo artist he has appeared twice in the New York-based Wordless Music Series as well as the Percussion Festival at Round Top, Bang on a Can Summer Institute at MassMoCA, and Minneapolis’ Marimba Underground Series. Dedicated to diversity of audience and venue, he has shared concert bills with artists ranging from The Percussion Group Cincinnati and MP Duo to international sensation DJ/rupture and indie rockers WHY?. In 2008 Weaver collaborated with Conspirare: A Company of Voices for a television special aired nationally on PBS, the recording of which was released on the Harmonia Mundi label and nominated for a Grammy award in 2009.
