Shelly Purdy

SHELLY PURDY is a contemporary percussionist and teaching artist from Maryland, currently living in Baltimore City where she has for the past decade been committed to presenting new and experimental music. Her sonic explorations tend to favor the mingling of found objects with more traditional instruments and an affinity for chance and silence whenever possible. These sonic worlds are explored through work with ensembles such as Umbilicus; a percussion quartet consisting of Baltimore improvisers’ Tom Goldstein, Paul Neidhart, and Will Redman. She is also a founding member of the science/music ensemble The Inverse Square Trio which seeks to demonstrate and illuminate acoustic properties and aural illusions through the works of Alvin Lucier, Steve Reich, Diana Deutsch, Richard Feynman and others. Purdy also embraces more traditional musics, most recently being her study with Professor Gina Beck on Javanese & Balinese Gamelan percussion. Purdy has been a member of The High Zero Foundation and Red Room Collective since 2016 and is happy to announce the forthcoming release of her duo tape “Six Improvisations for Two Vibraphones” with Will Redman on 20/20 Records.
