Lindsey Eastham is a contemporary percussionist from southern California. With un/pitched, Eastham has commissioned and performed six new percussion trio pieces. As a part of the Metamorphosis Project, she debuted four new vibraphone solos to audiences across the United States. Eastham holds a Bachelor of Music degree from California State University, Northridge; a Master of Music degree from Ithaca College; and will be continuing her studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London beginning Fall 2019. She is proud to endorse Marimba One as a discovery artist.

un/pitched is an organization focused on the people and relationships behind musical performances. Their mission is “to inspire a new generation of composers, performers, and audiences through educational investments, unique performances, and our ability to connect performers and composers in exciting, forward-thinking projects. In each community we serve, we bring together near-but-disconnected institutions, organizations, and audiences through new music in order to inspire and educate young musicians.”

The Metamorphosis Project is “aimed at examining the remarkable dynamic between the composer, the performer, and the instrument. By commissioning and presenting four new works for solo vibraphone and auxiliary percussion instruments, the Metamorphosis Project will highlight each composer’s unique voice by employing the same instrumentation throughout the entire program, allowing an evolution of possibilities to unfold in the hands of the performer and their instruments.” un/pitched would like to thank Marimba One for their support of this project and tour.
