Bang on a Can’s Co-Founders and Artistic Directors Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe, say of Long Play:
Music, right now! What is it, you might ask? You know, we can’t tell you! And that is a good thing. There is so much music happening that no one can pin it all down. Loud music, soft music. Delicate music, rugged music. Written down music, improvised music. Music for speeding up and music for slowing down. All around the world, musicians are innovating wildly, creating revolutionary sounds and experiences that no one could have imagined without them. And where is all this happening, you might ask? That we can answer! In Brooklyn, crossroads of the world, where musicians and audiences and peoples and sounds from everywhere come together. You can see and hear them all, on LONG PLAY.
