2023 Oregon Fringe Festival - …and that’s the piece!, Dean Kyle

A treasured part of the percussion world is its bizarre and beautiful perspective regarding what an instrument is. ...and that’s the piece! is a culmination of the joking suggestions and wild ideation of the Southern Oregon University Percussion Ensemble fully realized. This mini concert series of Dean Kyle’s original compositions brings the ‘bad ideas’ list to life, musically embracing its microwaves, dog duets, finger painting and all, no matter how unorthodox it may seem. Please keep in mind that each performance will present different compositions.

Dean Kyle is a junior studying Percussion and Electronic Arts at Southern Oregon University. He likes to write music for both computers and human musicians. Being queer and autistic is an essential component of his work and his interest in indulging and re-indulging in rich sensory experiences is a primary motivator for all of his creative endeavors. One of Dean’s most important guiding principles goes as follows: The verb that connects musicians to music is “play.”
