Timber – Cross//Hatch Percussion

February 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm CST

Timber – Cross//Hatch Percussion
In this memorable evening presented by both Chamber Music Milwaukee and MKE Unplugged, Cross//Hatch will present the Milwaukee premiere of Michael Gordon’s stirring evening-length minimalist score for six amplified simantras (2×4’s), Timber. The work is a meditation on sound and rhythm, bringing the physicality, endurance, and technique of percussion performance to a new level. It is often characterized as a hypnotic musical experience comprised of rough natural timbres, ever-shifting rhythmic crosscurrents, and hovering overtones that fuse in and out of phase, like the splatter of uneven rainfall on a flat roof.

Partnering with Revitalize Milwaukee to perform on recycled 2×4’s, this performance of Timber ponders the human relationship with wood as both a limited natural resource in need of conservation and as a tool for social justice to provide shelter and accessibility for those in need.

For this performance, Cross//Hatch is Andy Miller, Alex Wier, Colin O’Day, DeLane Doyle, Aaron Gochberg, and Paul Westfahl. They will be joined by visual artists Natalie Derr and Nicki Gamroth.
