    Founded in 2015, blueSHIFT Percussion members are Christopher Butler, Matthew Geiger, Jeremy Maytum and Francisco Perez. They are dedicated to the performance of modern works for percussion and engaging new audiences with thrilling performances. In astronomy, a “blueshift” is defined as a shift towards shorter wavelengths of the spectral lines of a celestial object, tracking the movement from the object as it grows ever closer to the observer. Inspired by the audible physics of percussion, the mission of blueSHIFT is to connect with our audience through chamber percussion music and to create authentic relationships with percussion composers. In a more literal sense, BlueSHIFT is an homage to the University of Kentucky percussion program, where all members have been DMA students under the direction of Prof. James Campbell.
