Up/Down is a percussion quartet originally founded in the Fall of 2014. Consisting of Joel Castro, James Klausmeyer, Jonathan Mashburn, and Jordan Walsh, the group regularly performs both as a quartet and in smaller duo and trio settings. Notable recent projects have included performances at the 2014 Columbus Minimalism Symposium, the 2015 Chosen Vale Percussion Seminar, an appearance in Clayton State University's Educational Series, the 2015 PASIC Chamber Competition, and various community outreach events. Up/Down's repertoire ranges from the works of veteran composers like Steve Reich and Jacob TV to newer contributions by Jason Treuting and Wally Gunn. The group is currently on hiatus as its members pursue graduate degrees at the University of Michigan, Indiana University, the University of Texas at Austin, and Columbus State University. The group recently reunited at the Schwob School of Music to record their debut album, which is currently in post-production.
