From the New Sounds Live concert series, listen to some of the newly commissioned works from the Bang on a Can People's Commissioning Fund Concert, recorded in Spring 2013 at Merkin Hall, as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival.  Hear multimedia composer Anna Clyne's "A Wonderful Day," incorporating the spoken and sung words of Chicago street musician Wooly from Mississippi.  Plus, Dan Deacon's "Sago An Ya Rev," a textural morphing transcription of a NASA Voyager featuring audience participation (and you all at home) via the smart phone Dan Deacon App. In preparation for tonight's New Sounds, you can download the Dan Deacon App (for iPhone or Android) and play along with his piece as you listen!

On this New Sounds program, we'll hear music from our New Sounds Live collaboration with the Ecstatic Music Festival: the Bang on a Can People's Commissioning Fund Concert recorded at Merkin Hall.  The All-Stars perform Steve Martland's propulsive "Horses of Instruction." Also, listen to the hauntingly subtle “Convex/Concave/Concord” by Danish composer Pelle Gudmunsen-Holmgreen, and the intensely grooving “Believing” by Bang on a Can co-founder Julia Wolfe.  And more.
