Percussion instruments may be known to carry a rhythm, but on Saturday night they emerge as the focus of a concert dubbed: "The Parrish Percussion Project: Process, Polyrhythm, and Performance Art," held at the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton.

The concert - presented by the Long Island Composers Alliance and organized by composer George Cork Maul - will feature works by composers Herbert A. Deutsch, Julie Mandel, Alexander Nohai-Seaman, Marga Richter and Maul.

Instruments played include vibes, cymbal, marimba, synthesizers, drums and piano.

"It should be remembered that the piano is a percussion instrument," says Maul in a written statement. "For me, percussion is at the beginning of music. Before there was music, there was rhythm; it is basic to our species."

Sinopia Quartet - a two-piano, two-percussion group -  and graduate music students at Stony Brook University will also perform.

The night concludes with a collaboration between Alan Bull, a painter, and the musicians. Bull will live paint what he hears and the musicians will play what they see in his work, allowing both mediums to inspire each other.

WHEN/WHERE: 8 p.m. Saturday, Parrish Art Museum, 25 Jobs Lane, Southampton.

COST $12 ($10 members)
