“Field of Vision,” Michael Gordon and the Bang on a Can Ensemble
July 25, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Free and for all ages, Field of Vision by Bang on a Can’s Michael Gordon is a large-scale, site-specific work adapted to PS21’s rolling landscape. Doug Perkins directs 36 percussionists playing specially constructed and tuned instruments composed of industrial metals, recycled materials, wood, and gongs. The large number of percussionists and the vast playing field highlights the perspective and the architectural movement of sound. In Field of Vision, sound is never a flat line; it takes on multiple roles in space and time, inducing a quasi-meditative, almost ecstatic state in both the audience and the performers.
