Works In Progress '13
On Ensemble takes the ancient instruments of taiko (Japanese drums) into new realms.  We are dedicated to making great music and exploring the artistic possibilities of the taiko and fue (Japanese bamboo flute).  Our Works In Progress concert series is the foundation of our creativity.  It provides us the space to be try new ideas, develop new pieces and new arrangements.  This year's Works In Progress concerts are especially important as we will be introducing On Ensemble's two newest members; Abe Lagrimas Jr. and Eien Hunter-Ishikawa.  We have been performing more and more with Abe and Eien recently and are very excited about what they will bring to On Ensemble.  

Abe Lagrimas Jr.
Abe Lagrimas Jr. is a multi-instrumentalist equally proficient on vibraphone, drum kit and ukulele.  Abe has toured throughout the world performing with notable musicians Eric Marienthal, Eric Reed, Azar Lawrence, Bill Mays, Jon Irabagon, Michael Paulo, Lalo Schifrin, Gabe Baltazar, James Morrison, Benny Rietveld, Jake Shimabukuro, James Ingram, Michael Ruff, Valery Ponomarev, Michelle Coltrane and many others.  He is a member of Prelude, one of South Korea's top jazz groups and is an active educator. He has released several albums his latest entitled Solo Ukulele - King of Pop pays tribute to pop king Michael Jackson and was recognized by the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts as the EP Release of the Year

Eien Hunter-Ishikawa
Eien Hunter-Ishikawa is a versatile drummer, percussionist and taiko players with a multifaceted musical background.  He earned his Bachelor of Music Education at Central Michigan University where he performed, recorded and toured as a member of the Robert Hohner Percussion Ensemble.  He earned his Master of Music at the University of Hawaii Manoa.  During his time in Hawaii, Eien performed and toured extensively as a member of the Kenny Endo Taiko Ensemble.  Currently based in Vancouver, Eien collaborates with shakuhachi artist Alcvin Ryuzen Ramos and has performed with a wide variety of musicians from electro acoustic groups Isshin Denshin and Haagen & Ryuzen to dancer Colleen Lanki to bag pipe ensembles, African band Kow Kanda and rock/reggae band Still Creek.

This year we've extended an open invitation to composers and groups in the taiko community to present a piece at our Work In Progress concert series.  We intend to turn this concert series into a creative foundation not only for On Ensemble but for the larger taiko community!  So look out for more special guests at these concerts!
