Taktus is a marimba duo known for their groove-based re-envisioning of classical and contemporary music. Their 2020 album Mirrored Glass earned a spot on the CBC’s “Top 20 Classical Albums of 2020” and was nominated for “Instrumental Recording of the Year at the ECMA’s.
The band just released “Music in Contrary Motion,” an early Philip Glass piece reimagined for the marimbas. The original piece is inherently frantic, but the band tried to capture a sense of peace and flow with the warm characteristic of the marimbas.
The release has been paired with a ‘Black Mirror’ inspired visual that incorporates snapshots from nature.
