User Bio

SWARM is a kinetic percussion group that combines music, movement and mass. SWARM choreographs frenzied drumming pieces combined with symphonic and electronic elements. SWARM’s artillery includes hundreds of large-scale industrial drum sculptures, invented instruments such as longstrings, tube basses, musical body armor, bagpipe whirligigs, tuned rubber and PVC tubes, as well as a vast array of found and recycled objects.

Founded in 1995 by Bill Wallace, SWARM has engineered unique musical events ranging from children's theatre to sight specific performances and workshops to multimedia theatrical events. SWARM has played ten of thousands of shows for hundreds of thousands of breathless audience members across North America.

We are based in Western Canada and love to collaborate with artists and musicians of all disciplines. Whether you need a whole event or show put together, or just want to enhance your event with a big opening drum piece or need projection screens and visuals, feel free to contact us at: swarm@shaw.ca
