Rest/Noise

The Rockwell

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. The conglomerate experience is a hauntingly beautiful, ethereal blend of mellow bass and complex overtones. Timber has been hailed as “its own religious experience” (Sarah Garvey, Brooklyn Academy of Music), “bewildering yet comforting” (The Guardian), and possessing “vigor and hypnotic intensity” (New York Times).

Rest/Noise is a performing arts collective that revolves around percussion.  Collaboration between people of different mediums (theater, electronics, digital media) and performing music not usually heard in the Boston music scene is important to us. Rest/Noise takes its name from the quintessential read on 20th-Century music The Rest is Noise by Alex Ross.
