Add to Calendar 08-09-2013 08-09-2013 15 Music In The Garden With its unparalleled musical sensibility, Bang on a Can is one of the world's best recognized and most powerful ambassador's of contemporary music. Mantra Percussion will perform Michael Gordon's Timber in the Museum's sculpture garden. Timber is a full-length concert composed for six percussionists playing on amplified two by fours using mallets and fingertips. Hailed by The New York Times as "finely polished...a fresh source of energy" and by TimeOut New York as "forward thinking" Mantra Percussion was recognized by The New Yorker and TimeOut New York for presenting one of the ten best classical performances of 2012. Committed to expanding the future of percussion music, Mantra Percussion commissions and performs new, significant works for large percussion ensemble by both established and emerging composers. Devoted to engaging new audiences, Mantra Percussion challenges the standard classical concert format by producing evening-length events that look toward a grander artistic vision. The group has been featured at festivals, venues, and universities throughout North America including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Carlsbad New Music Festival, the Bowling Green New Music Festival, MIT with Bang on a Can All-Stars, Percussive Arts Society International Convention, X Avant Festival, New Music New College, Moving Sounds Festival, Ear Heart Music, Hi Fi Music Festival, and Make Music New York. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=142748 The Noguchi Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
