Little status update from Nexus....

Bob Becker's arrangement of Dance of the Octopus was just featured in a Denver concert. He just got home from his residency at the Lamont School of Music, U of Denver, hosted by John Kinzie, where he gave workshops on Xylophone History and Performance Concepts, West African Drumming, and The Music of Steve Reich. In the concert, Bob was soloist with the Percussion Ensemble and they featured his pieces Mudra and Unseen Child, marimba solo arrangements In A Mist and Dance of the Octopus, and selected arrangements of music by G. H. Green.
