Timber has been hailed as "its own religious experience" (Sarah Garvey, Brooklyn Academy of Music), "bewildering yet comforting" (The Guardian), and possessing "vigor and hypnotic intensity" (New York Times).

ABOUT THE GROUP:
Rest/Noise is a performing arts group that that revolves around a core group of percussionists. Collaboration between people of different mediums (theater, electronics, digital media), being an active part of the Boston community, and performing music not usually heard in the Boston music scene is important to us. Rest/Noise takes its name from the quintessential read on 20th-Century music The Rest is Noise by Alex Ross; this name was gratefully approved by Mr. Ross.
