Description

Featuring the London-based Russian composer Elena Langer’s Two Cat Songs (2010), for voice, piano, and cello, and Bang on a Can co-founder Michael Gordon’s 2010 work Timber – a percussive tour de force for six musicians playing amplified lengths of lumber. Based on the simantras used by Eastern Orthodox monks, these instruments will be custom-built for this performance.

“Beyond the ever-shifting rhythmic crosscurrents that give the music its vigor and hypnotic intensity, Timber also plays on tones unique to each plank…overtones hover and fuse, conjuring eerie moans and radiant coronas.” (Steve Smith, New York Times)
