Out of friendship and admiration for Bang on a Can composer Michael Gordon and his publicist — that would be my friend Amanda Ameer, whose “Life’s A Pitch” blog is essential reading — I’m helping publicize a performance this Wednesday at Le Poisson Rouge in New York. On the program: Michael’s very nice piece Trance.
To hear a sample of it, the very last track of the CD, just go here. To hear the previous track…well, it’s a puzzle. Think of music blogs you might have visited, and go to the one that licks its lips, metallically, in the dark of night. (Its creator can be found posting comments here.) There you’ll find a hint about other blogs to go to, where you can hear other tracks from the piece, seven in all.
If you find all seven blogs, you can win free tickets to the show. First three to find all seven should email the list to Amanda. Good luck!
And if you just want to buy the music (not a bad option) on CD or as a download, go here.
