From the NPR Field Recordings comes a video performance of Michael Gordon’s Timber, written for six two-by-fours, performed by Mantra. This performance was filmed live at Lowe’s Home Center. Mantra has been performing this piece for the past couple of months, including a performance at PASIC 2011 in Indy, and it is great to see that the group and the piece are being recognized on national broadcasts. Congrats Mantra and Michael Gordon!
