B. Michael Williams is an award-winning university professor of music in South Carolina. As a percussionist, he performs with symphonies and orchestras and participates in international percussive societies and events. Through his doctoral work on the percussionist John Cage (1935-1943), Dr. Williams studied middle eastern frame drumming.
He has now composed “Four Solos for Frame Drums.” Using the same strokes and techniques we do, he has developed scores for his frame drum and riq pieces .
