Past Event Sound Series: Bang on a Can: Field Recordings 

An orchestra is seated on stage. Behind them is a video projection showing a classic sculpture against a blue and green lit background.

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 Tyondai Braxton, 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.

This performance is co-presented with Carnegie Nexus as part of the series Strange Times: Earth in the Age of the Human, the Music on the Edge series of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Music, the Pittsburgh Humanities Festival, and media sponsors 91.3 WYEP and 90.5 WESA.
