Bang on a Can All-Stars
Saturday, February 28, 2015, 8 p.m.
Formed in 1992, the Bang on a Can All-Stars is recognized worldwide for their ultra-dynamic live performances and recordings of today’s most innovative music. Freely crossing the boundaries of classical, jazz, rock, world and experimental music, this six-member amplified ensemble has consistently forged a distinct category-defying identity, taking music into uncharted territories. Performing each year throughout the United States and internationally, the All-Stars have shattered the definition of what concert music is today.
The ensemble has worked in unprecedented close collaboration with some of the most important and inspiring musicians of our time, including Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, Burmese circle drum master Kyaw Kyaw Naing, Tan Dun, DJ Spooky. Their projects include recordings of Brian Eno’s ambient classic Music for Airports and Terry Riley’s In C, as well as performances with Philip Glass, Meredith Monk, Don Byron, Iva Bittova, Thurston Moore, and Owen Pallett.
