V&B: The Power of Percussion with Glenn Kotche

In November of 2012 Texas Performing Arts presented the world premiere of I L I M A Q, a drum kit opera written by American composer John Luther Adams for percussionist Glenn Kotche, drummer for the alternative rock band Wilco. KUT’s Views and Brews couldn’t resist the opportunity to invite John, Glenn and bassist Darin Gray to the Cactus Cafe to discuss the creation process behind this exciting new work and talk with them about their musical philosophies and histories.
