Composer and musician Rick Sacks holds a master’s degree in percussion from SUNY Stony Brook. He performs with Arraymusic, The Glass Orchestra, New Music Concerts, the Canadian Opera Company, Tapestry New Opera, Evergreen Club Contemporary Gamelan among others, and has toured extensively throughout Europe and Asia. He has recorded with these ensembles as well as being the marimba player on the Nonesuch recording of Charles Wuorinen’s Percussion Symphony (New Jersey Percussion Ensemble). In 1986 Rick revised and edited Edgard Varèse’s Hyperprism for COLFRANC music publishing, allowing the piece to be performed by nine players without changing the music itself. That same year he performed in the première of George Crumb’s An Idyll for the Misbegotten with New Music Concerts.
