Timber is an hour-long work by NYC-based composer/member of the Bang On a Can Collective, Michael Gordon, written for 6 percussionists each playing their own piece of amplified wood (2x4, 2x6, etc.).  The conglomerate experience is a hauntingly beautiful, ethereal cave of mellow bass and complex overtones.

Bang on a Can Road Trip

Friday, October 27, 2017 to Saturday, October 28, 2017

We call it Road Trip. The tank is full, the top is down, and we have our collective hand on the dial for a euphoric musical journey celebrating 30 years of Bang on a Can. Michael GordonDavid Lang, and Julia Wolfe flood the waves with an original mash-up of wind-in-your-hair tunes that capture the sublime exhilaration of freedom and possibility. Performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars, with stunning scenic design by projection artist CandyStations (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent) and stage direction by Michael Counts, "Road Trip" is a tribute to journeys of all sorts, and the people who make them. There is a road, but it is no simple highway.
