30 years ago, three young composers started a journey together, and they called that journey “Bang on a Can.” After hundreds of thousands of miles and hundreds of new pieces, records, productions, marathons and summer festivals, they’re still best of friends – still on the road together, still sharing the journey.
To mark this moment, Michael Gordon, David Lang and Julia Wolfe have together written a piece that celebrates the freedom and mystery of the open road. Dirt road, country road, two lane blacktop, superhighway. Destination unknown. Maybe even unknowable.
Played and sung by the unstoppable, sexy and loud Bang on a Can All-Stars, Road Trip is directed by the visionary Michael Counts with gorgeous scenic design by by CandyStations, and lit by the brilliant Ben Stanton. Come with us!
