Aaron Garcia The electronic remixes of Mantra Percussion's performance of "Timber "are incredible. Also, the album art work looks fantastic in both formats. Favorite track: Timber [Oneohtrix Point Never Remix].

Arminda Klier If you had told me there would be a remix album to Gordon's Timber I would have said it is not necessary, but after listening to this remix album, I understand that it is. It is so interesting to hear the organic stripped back original get stretched in different interpretations. Favorite track: Timber [Hprizm Remix].

about

When Michael Gordon’s Timber, scored for six amplified wooden 2-by-4s, premiered in 2009, it brought the physicality and endurance of percussion performance to a new level. In the liner notes for Slagwerk Den Haag’s recording of the piece, released on Cantaloupe Music in 2011, Gordon described a connection to the work of shamanist author Carlos Castaneda, whose self-imposed spirit journey in the desert could wipe the brain clean and “bring on visions.”

Newly recorded by Mantra Percussion and reworked by an A-list of producers and DJs, Gordon’s deep exploration into the extreme possibilities of rhythm gets the full electronic treatment on Timber Remixed. The double-CD set also includes Mantra’s live performance of Timber from the 2014 Bang on a Can Marathon.

Mantra Percussion is:
Joe Bergen, Al Cerulo, Chris Graham, Mike McCurdy, Jude Traxler, Nick Woodbury, and Owen Weaver

about

Michael Gordon New York, New York

Michael Gordon's music merges subtle rhythmic invention with incredible power embodying, in the words of The New Yorker's Alex Ross, "the fury of punk rock, the nervous brilliance of free jazz and the intransigence of classical modernism."
