BANG ON A CAN PLAYS ART

Bang on a Can Plays Clifford Ross #2

Thursday, July 30, 4:30pm: Bang on a Can Plays Clifford Ross #2

Intimate works of Alvin Lucier

Bang on a Can’s second response to Clifford Ross connects music to Ross’s close observation of the natural. For 50 years Alvin Lucier has been one of experimental music’s most relentlessly observant pioneers. His elegant ideas are often expressed in subtle installations whose sonic power comes from their directness, their seeming simplicity, their honesty. Bang on a Can is honored to have Lucier at MASS MoCA for a concert of his works Canon and Firewood, both commissioned by Bang on a Can.
