Anonymous Man is a concert-length work from Bang on a Can composer Michael Gordon, based on conversations he has had over the past few years with homeless men who live on his street in New York City. These conversations are serious, funny, mysterious, poetic, and mundane, and they are with men who have become invisible to the world around them.  Anonymous Man is Gordon's attempt to hear them.
