Bang On A Can


My music gets played in town a lot, but I’m related to a lot of other people who write music and ever since we started Bang on a Can, I’ve been trying to get people to believe that we’re all part of this big network

Bang On A Can is a multi-faceted contemporary classical music organisation based in New York City. It was founded in 1987 by three American composers who remain its artistic directors: Julia Wolfe, David Lang, and Michael Gordon. Called “the country’s most important vehicle for contemporary music” by the San Francisco Chronicle, the organisation is a major force in the presentation of new concert music, and has presented hundreds of musical events worldwide.
