SECRET DRUM BAND is a noise & percussion ensemble that began as a four-piece in 2006 in Olympia, WA. Lisa Schonberg composes the music for SDB, and these compositions are carried out & interpreted by a rotating cast of percussionists and noise musicians. The most recent iterations of the group have included up to five drummers and two musicians creating noises, loops and tones. Heather Treadway designs costumes for the ensemble. Lisa's compositions for SDB are often place-based explorations of soundscapes, species assemblages, ecological function, and movement.
This performance featured Heather Treadway, Marisa Anderson, Ben Tyler, Sara Lund, Allan Wilson and Aidan Koch.
