Caramoor: Michael Gordon’s Field of Vision (World Premiere)
*Please bring your own seating for this event.
Bang on a Can composer Michael Gordon has produced a strikingly diverse body of work, ranging from major orchestral commissions to site-specific works in the wilderness, to surround-sound experiences like Decasia and Timber. Transcending categorization, his music tells stories about place and memory. Gordon’s Field of Vision is a large-scale site-specific work for Caramoor’s Sunken Garden and the surrounding field. The work features 40 percussionists; 20 in a spatial chain of moving sound in dialogue with 20 percussionists who come in and out of view. The percussionists perform on newly created instruments made from recycled metals and wood. Don’t miss the world premiere of this FREE immersive outdoor concert experience! All ages welcome.
3:00pm / Join us for a conversation with Michael Gordon and Doug Perkins.
