Mantra Percussion at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, December 13, 2012
The New York Times, Dec. 15, 2013
Michael Gordon's new percussion sextet, Timber, ended up on both my year-end Top 10 list for Time Out New York (details of which will come in a subsequent post) and Alex Ross's list for The New Yorker. This week, I was surprised and delighted to have a brief cameo in Alex's column about Gordon and David Lang in The New Yorker, available to subscribers and purchasers only. Try to find it; it's superb.
You can still watch Mantra Percussion's clever video of a Timber performance at a Lowe's Hardware store, as filmed by NPR, on YouTube, here.
