Savion Glover, Grammy Award-winning dancer, choreographer and producer.
"Outsider" Piezo Transducer (1457)
"I strive to develop a unique sound that will encourage renewed interest in dance," said Savion Glover, performer, choreographer, producer and director. "Through my work with Gregory Hines, I discovered the Barcus-Berry transducer, which impeccably translates my stage movement to the audience, opening up doors to new types of sound."
Bio: Glover's inventive style of dance and alternative employment of musical instruments and accessories has increased his international recognition. Savion is known for his performance in films such as "Tap" and Spike Lee's "Bamboozled." He is also a well-acclaimed Broadway performer, staring in "The Tap Dance Kid," "Jelly's Last Jam," "Black and Blue" and "Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk," where he won the 1996 Tony Award for Best Choreographer. Savion has made television appearances at the 2002 Winter Olympics, "Nickelodeon," "Sesame Street," PBS and ABC Monday Night Football.
Barcus-Berry provided a variety of 1457 guitar transducers for Savion's show at the Joyce Theatre, New York in December 2005 and January 2006. Savion inventively attaches the Barcus-Berry pickups to the stage floor to amplify his tap sound, a learned method of Gregory Hines, a Barcus-Berry user himself. Savion uses 13 to 21 Barcus-Berry transducers per show.
