The ensemble has recorded ten full-length albums, three EPs, and a number of appearances on other releases. The quartet has put its stamp on iconic percussion works by John Cage, Steve Reich, and Philippe Manoury, and created the first recordings of commissioned works by Philip Glass, Augusta Read Thomas, David T. Little, and Ted Hearne, in addition to recordings of the ensemble’s own compositions. In 2017 the ensemble won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble performance for its recording of Steve Reich’s works for percussion, and 2019, the ensemble received a Grammy nomination in the same category, for its ninth album, Perpetulum.
It's the first time I've written music that I've never played, and I love that. It's something I've always been striving to get to. Seeing what Third Coast Percussion had done with these pieces was magical.
