Lee Ferguson is a percussionist based in Freiburg, Germany who has begun commissioning 'Etudes' for midi-mallet instruments. This project is focused towards young players (high school or early college) who are interested in learning more about how to use electronics whilst still playing with mallets in their hands. The etudes are sometimes short, utilize electronics and are fun to play/listen to. Lee will perform and talk about a selection of works from the UK, Germany, Korea, USA and Zimbabwe that have been written for this project.
