Sound Series: Bang on a Can: Field Recordings
The Bang on a Can All-Stars are an electric chamber ensemble known for exploring the furthest reaches of the classical music world. Field Recordings is the group’s ongoing multimedia project that combines music, film, found sound, and obscure audio-visual archives to create a dialogue between past and present art traditions and past and present interpretations of the word “environment.” A new soundscape for the Anthropocene includes composers Anna Clyne, Dan Deacon, Michael Gordon (with film by Bill Morrison), Johann Johannsson, David Lang, Christian Marclay (with film by Christian Marclay), Gabriella Smith, Julia Wolfe, and more.
