When the power goes out, you play poker to pass the time.
Sorry Ed! Could have been MUCH worse if you had cut through the electrical cables that weren’t powered off though.

grej is the solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist specializing in classical minimalism and electronic music. Next month we’ll be releasing an EP of compositions created for modern dance, which you can preview from the video below.
The majority of the record was commissioned by Form CDT in 2016, which was danced beautifully by Mateo Galindo Torres with live illustrations by Carlos Delgado in 2017. Each work navigates through a physical and emotive journey that features manipulated cymbals and a Roland Juno synthesizer.
“The makeup of cymbals have always interested me. Their harmonic properties are so complex and are often overlooked. I wanted to treat these instruments just as I would with an analog synth, and use them in very unconventional ways”.
