Program #1861

Remember the turn of the millennium? Musicians were going the extra mile in their programming to celebrate the event, as this edition of New Sounds reminds us. We hear selections from the 2000 Bang On A Can Marathon concert at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, with John Halle's Operation Chaos; Steve Martland's Remix; Julia Wolfe's Keeper; as well as performances by Lionheart, the Bang On A Can All-Stars, Talvin Singh and Steven Schick, and many other denizens of New York's Downtown scene.
