Left Edge Percussion

Terry Longshore, Artistic Director of Left Edge Percussion, will lead the SOU percussion ensemble performing Michael Gordon's "Timber". 

Michael Gordon's Timber is an evening-length tour de force. Scored for six graduated, amplified, wooden Simantras (2x4s). The work brings the physicality, endurance and technique of percussion performance to a new level. In this work, Gordon shapes the music in both polyrhythmic and dynamic waves of textures — often each players' hands are in separate rhythmic 'worlds', each traversing a different dynamic contour from loud to soft to loud.
The performance will begin at 7:12:41 pm and the final note will sound at 8:14:13 pm, coinciding exactly with sunset.
