Welome to CANLAND - Bang on a Can's new archive

Since 1987 we've done our best to save, record and video as many of our programs as possible. We've now put the finishing touches on an ALL ACCESS archive of all 33 years of music-making. We're calling it CanLand. Our vision for CanLand is that it's not just a museum-like catalog, but a meeting place for the extraordinary world we have built together over these many years, a place to connect and reconnect with the music, the composers, the performers, the experiences we've shared, and most important, with one another during this very unusual time of separation.
