Event Description (more details are better!)
Bang On A Can Summer Music Festival
Brilliant musicians and composers inhabit the MASS MoCA campus from July 12 – July 28 for three rollicking weeks of innovative, unexpected, and ear-expanding music.Three decades ago, composers Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe noticed something missing in the universe of music: a zone between rock, jazz, classical, and folk where new forms of musical expression could find new audiences and new players. A composer combining electric guitar, exuberant percussion, and classical instrumentation needed a place to collaborate with a musician experimenting with minimal beats and Appalachian fiddling. So they invented a new world of music, and called it Bang on a Can.Recitals in the galleries take place at 1:30 and 4:30 PM everyday (except Sundays). For earlier shows expect fresh music; experimental, raw, often only days (or minutes) old. For 4:30 shows, performances are often drawn from more established works, well-known composers, and pieces written by Bang founders and faculty.Bang on a Can All-Stars is on Saturday, July 21st at 8 PM, followed by the Bang On A Can Marathon with Steve Reich on July 28th from 4-10PM. More than 60 performers in more than 20 performances make up 6 hours of magical music and mayhem. Come early and stay long — the Hunter will be flowing with familiar and just-composed music, while the courtyard is full of friends and food. One of our favorite and most lively days of the year, this year features works by another favorite, guest composer Steve Reich.
