Bang on a Can Marathon 2008

Hear excerpts from new music's biggest annual event - the 2008 edition of the annual Bang On A Can Marathon, recorded live at the World Financial Center on this edition of New Sounds. There's music from Alarm Will Sound tackling the Beatles' Revolution #9, and perhaps a bit of post-rock pulsetronica from Dan Deacon. Plus, the Crash Ensemble performs Terry Riley's recent work "Loops for Ancient Giant Hairy Nude Warriors Racing Down the Slopes of Battle" complete with electric guitar and ass-whooping distortion. And much more.

PROGRAM # 2826, from the 2008 Bang on a Can Marathon, Pt. 1 (First aired on Wed.. 7-23-08)
