The nief-norf Project Fall 2013 Tour: Michael Gordon's Timber

Sat, Oct 12, 2013 at 5:30pm - Sat, Oct 19, 2013 at 6:30pm

Michael Gordon's work TIMBER is an evening-length tour de force scored for six graduated wooden Simantras. Gordon's composition brings the physicality, endurance, and technique of percussive art to a new level. In this evening-length work, Gordon shapes sound in both polyrhythmic and dynamic waves of textures - often each player's hands are in separate rhythmic "worlds," each traversing a different dynamic trajectory from loud to soft, soft to loud.
