BANG ON A CAN PLAYS ART

Bang on a Can Plays Jim Shaw

Wednesday, July 29, 4:30pm Bang on a Can Plays Jim Shaw

Toy Piano Extravaganza

Free With Museum Admission

Just because toy pianos are small and look like miniature versions of a more traditionally respectable instrument doesn’t mean that composers don’t take them seriously. Bang on a Can brings a raft of these tiny instruments into Jim Shaw’s Entertaining Doubts, which looks at American cultural detritus in Shaw’s own playfully serious way.

The show features HOCKET playing:

Aaron Holloway-Nahum's Remember Me? (Part IV) (world premiere)

David Smooke's Toy with Me

Thomas Kotcheff'death, hocket and roll

Plus Vicki Ray performing John Cage's suite for toy piano

And Matt Evans performing David Lang's miracle ear
