Michael Gordon’s Field of Vision is a large-scale, site-specific work for Caramoor’s Sunken Garden and the surrounding field. The work features 48 percussionists; 24 in a spatial chain of moving sound in dialogue with 24 percussionists who come in and out of view. The percussionists, led by Doug Perkins and featuring the Bang on a Can Percussion Ensemble, will perform on newly created instruments made from recycled metal and wood.
