Dublin Guitar Quartet

Presented in association with BAM as part of BAM’s 2016 Next Wave Festival

December 14 – 17 | 7:30 PM

at Bam Fisher, Fishman Space, 321 Ashland Place, Brooklyn, NY 11217

Music by Michael Gordon
Directed by Jim Findlay

The Dublin Guitar Quartet goes electric for the third installment of Bang on a Can founding composer Michael Gordon’s series exploring the untapped possibilities of select instruments. In Timber (BAM’s 2012 Next Wave), layered polyrhythms rippled from amplified two-by-fours situated in the round. In 2012’s Rushes, seven bassoonists used circular breathing to sustain clouds of mercurial sound. For Amplified, Gordon’s experiment takes a six-stringed turn. With the audience seated on four sides, the musicians send reverb-saturated pulsations across the aural field while redefining what the guitar as an ensemble instrument can be.

Running Time: 60 minutes
