CrossTalk

CrossTalk is the only performing ensemble of its kind in the world. Playing DrumKATs, MalletKATs, TrapKATs, Zendrums, HandSonic, Wave Drum, and other electronic percussion systems, this nine-member group is shredding the envelope of electronic percussion.

You've Never Heard Anything Like This Before!

CrossTalk does not play traditional percussion ensemble literature electronically. Instead, the philosophy of the ensemble is to create and perform new works and offer unique musical opportunities and experiences to its members and their audience.

The University of Arizona

CrossTalk is a part of the Percussion Studio at the University of Arizona in Tucson and directed by Dr. Norman Weinberg, one of the world's foremost authorities on electronic percussion instruments.
