Bang on a Can PCF Concert

From the New Sounds Live concert series, the Bang on a Can All-Stars play works commissioned for them through the People's Commissioning Fund. Hear the spare and intense work of Yoav Gal ("Doctor King"), the quirky and driving music of Annie Gosfield ("Overvoltage Rumble"), and the ecstatic and witty music of composer/drummer John Hollenbeck ("Rainbow Jimmies.") Plus revisit Edward Ruchalski's richly textured piece "Another Infinity," a reprise from the first People's Commissioning Fund concert in 2000, where guitar and bass anchor gamelan-like vibraphone and piano phrases, all intertwined with clarinet and cello lines.
