This September, the Bang on a Can All-Stars kick off the 2014/15 season returning for the fourth consecutive year to Krakow’s Sacrum Profanum Festival!
The September 17 concert features the All-Stars with Sonic Youth stalwart Lee Ranaldo (performing his work How Deep Are Rivers written for the band via the People's Commissioning Fund); the All-Stars with Polish new jazz DJ Skalpel (playing Philip Glass' early work Two Pages), and PCF-commissioned Field Recordings works by Richard Reed Parry, Alvin Lucier, Daniel Wohl, and Dan Deacon.
This fall, Bang on a Can's exhilarating marching band Asphalt Orchestra releases its latest performance, Asphalt Orchestra Plays Pixies: Surfer Rosa, on Cantaloupe Music! Praised by The New York Times as 'inventive, idiomatic arrangements,” the Asphalt album pays tribute to the groundbreaking original and its influence permeating most walks of musical life.
In celebration of the release, the band will journey to Georgia's Emory University (September 5) and Oklahoma State (Septmeber 12), performing selections from the album alongside classic band tunes.
Cantaloupe Music has teamed up with the Seattle Symphony to release the official recording of John Luther Adams' Pulitzer Prize-winning Become Ocean on September 30. Mixed and mastered in pristine stereo and 5.1 surround sound, the piece has been described by the New Yorker’s Alex Ross as “...the loveliest apocalypse in musical history.”
