8 by Michael Gordon
Directed by Jiska Rickels and recorded live in the Stadsgehoorzaal, Leiden.
The legendary Bang on a can composer, Michael Gordon recently composed a major new work for the Octet called “8”. The piece has been likened to a sound sculpture due to the manner in which it changes the listener’s perception of space. In April 2021, the Octet’s recording of the piece was released on the Cantaloupe label and as of now, “8” can also be experienced as an online concert!
