Michael Gordon
Don’t miss Michael Gordon’s Timber, a unique work co-commissioned and performed by New York-based ensemble Mantra Percussion. A complex piece for six percussion players, Timber is scored for a “simantra” – six wooden two-by-four boards cut to different lengths.  Gordon’s intricate rhythms and ever-undulating dynamics move in spiraling circles, haloed by the rich overtones generated by the wood instruments to create a fascinating soundscape out of pure and resonating timber.
