Ian has been Artistic Director of TaikOz since its inception in 1997. In 2005 he became full-time with the group after having spent 20 years as Principal Percussionist with the Sydney Symphony and 16 years with the percussion group Synergy.
In this interview, we discuss Ian’s taiko performance background, how it connects to his background in Western percussion, what makes TaikOz different, and how the group creates repertoire and conceptualizes concert flow.
