Biography:

Taktus is a Toronto-based percussion duo founded by Greg Harrison and Jonny Smith. With a wide range of musical influences - from minimalism, to jazz, to electro-acoustic music - Taktus seeks to create music that crosses borders between genres and is relevant to contemporary audiences. Their premiere project is set of marimba duet arrangements of Glass Houses - a seminal work of Canadian minimalism by composer Ann Southam. In the summer of 2015, Taktus released their debut album, Glass Houses for Marimba, on the Canadian Music Centre’s record label, Centrediscs. It has received critical acclaim by reviewers from Wholenote Magazine, Scene Magazine, and I Care If You Listen. The album was also listed as one of CBC’s Top 10 Canadian Classical Music Albums of 2015.
