Bang on a Can teams up with the Ecstatic Music Festival to present the 2014 Bang on a Can People’s Commissioning Fund (PCF) concert, one of the most anticipated and reliable launching pads for emerging composers in New York and beyond, hosted again this year by John Schaefer/WNYC New Sounds and streamed as a live audio webcast by Q2 Music!
This year, the Bang on a Can All-Stars will give the world premieres of works by three PCF-commissioned composers: Alvin Lucier, Richard Reed Parry, and Daniel Wohl, in addition to a performance of Julia Wolfe’s driving classic from 1994 Lick, and David Lang’s haunting death speaks featuring the Bang on a Can All-Stars with special guest Shara Worden.

A HUGE thanks goes out to the 199 backers who supported our wildly virtuosic marching band Asphalt Orchestra in the Kickstarter campaign Asphalt Orchestra Re-Imagines The Pixies' "Surfer Rosa"!
Thanks to you, we raised above our goal and can move forward in our plans to record, release, and tour this reinterpretation of the indie-punk classic. Stay tuned for more details coming soon.
Thank you for your support!
