sou-gpg-jumpFriday, May 1, 8pm
Ashland, Oregon
Southern Oregon University Schneider Museum of Art

The Southern Oregon University Graduate Percussion Group will present Michael Gordon’s minimalist masterpiece, “Timber”, for 6 amplified “simantras”, (planks of wood) which has been described as “a meditation on sound and rhythm, bringing the physicality, endurance and technique of percussion performance to a new level.”

This will be the second performance of a set we are giving this winter/spring. The performance follows Ashland’s First Friday Art Walk. The 3rd and final performance will be Tuesday, May 19, at 7:27:28pm at the Southern Oregon University Center for Sustainability. The performance is timed so the last note is sounded at sunset.
