Everything Else, the latest work from composer Sarah Hennies is percussion music in the sense that a contemporary definition of "percussion" has the potential to include almost anything that is not already defined as some other instrument (cello, piano, clarinet, etc.). Hennies draws a parallel between being a percussionist and queer identities in that both are most often defined by what they are not. Both sides of the tape are 20-minute blocks of sound/activity seemingly without direction. A-side "Falsetto" is for "low-quailty" bells found at thrift stores and flea markets while the title track explores a harder to define space.
