University of Kentucky College of FIne Arts

Distinguished Alumni Award 2007


Check into

Glenn Kotche’s  recordings--

both with Wilco and especially as a composer and solo artist

--they’re  truly remarkable:

Creating this award after listening to Glenn’s amazing music and hearing him speak of his affection for “found sound” made me suddenly aware of percussive sounds all around me in my daily life--faucets, cups, screens, virtually everything can make sound. Some of those many discoveries made their formal debut in this ‘award as toy drum’ created for his leisure-time

amusement. (Ha! ever seen how hard he works?)
