What do the Bang on a Can All-Stars look like as animated aardvarks? Find out this Wednesday when the band visits the PBS KIDS’s popular cartoon ARTHUR, in an episode called Binky’s Music Madness airing nationwide on May 14, as part of ARTHUR Arts Week!
For the occasion, we’re offering ARTHUR fans (and the public in general) a FREE DOWNLOAD of the music featured on the episode, from the All-Stars 2012 album Big Beautiful Dark and Scary. Two years in the making, the animated All-Stars lineup includes founding Bang on a Can All-Star clarinetist Evan Ziporyn, percussionist David Cossin, guitarist Mark Stewart, bassist Robert Black, cellist Ashley Bathgate, and pianist Vicky Chow. Bang on a Can co-founder composer Julia Wolfe is also portrayed and recorded her own speaking role for the episode.
