News - Michael Gordon's 'Timber' remixed by Hauschka, Greg Saunier, Jóhann Jóhannsson, and more

Wednesday, November 2, 2016
When Michael Gordon's Timber premiered in 2011, it brought the physicality and endurance of percussion performance to another level. Timber is scored for six graduated wooden Simantras: amplified instruments devised by the composer Iannis Xenakis that are cousins to two-by-four lumber.

Now 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.' Featuring the studio touches of Squarepusher, Oneohtrix Point Never, Tim Hecker, Hauschka, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Ikue Mori, and many more, the double-CD set includes Mantra's live performance of Timber from the 2014 Bang on a Can Marathon.

' "Timber Remixed" is a project that finds the spiritual connection between electronic music and classical.'
— Claire Lobenfeld, Fact Magazine
