As part of the 10th season of the Ecstatic Music at Merkin Hall, Bang on a Can’s People’s Commissioning Fund is a radical partnership between artists and audiences to commission works from adventurous composers. Founded in 1997, long before crowd-funding became the norm through Kickstarter and the like, Bang on a Can’s PCF has pooled contributions of all sizes from hundreds of friends and fans and since its inception has commissioned over 50 works of music for New York’s electric Bang on a Can All-Stars. 

The 2020 PCF composers:

Amanda Berlind
Alvin Curran
Hildur Guđnadóttir
Qasim Naqvi

Plus a 1998 commission by Phil Kline and Julius Eastman's Stay On It!
