Drumming in the Dark? An Interview with Steven Schick by Ricardo Souza and Christine Conklin (October 2004 Percussive Notes)

Jan 27, 2022, 08:00 AM by Rhythm Scene Staff

"When introducing Steven Schick as a guest performer at a poetry reading, poet Chuck Moulton related percussion to poetry by saying that we are all ‘drumming in the dark.’ Poets and percussionists were fatally linked as wanderers because of the uncertain nature of their craft, he said. This recurring theme of drumming in the dark inspired not only the title of Schick’s latest solo recording, but also the first night of the infamous ‘Three Nights of Percussion,’ a series of concerts performed by Schick in New York City in 1998.”
