With one of the most unorthodox ensembles imaginable, New York City-based Michael Gordon, composer and founder of the iconic new music organization Bang on a Can, culminates a recording residency with the world premiere of a new work for seven bassoons. Best known for music driving rhythmic intensity and power, Gordon explores interweaving texture and timbre of a surplus of double reeds.

The Rushes ensemble includes bassoonists Rachael Elliott, Michael Harley, Lynn Hileman, Dana Jessen, Jeffrey Lyman, Saxton Rose, and Maya Stone.
