New Music at the Atlas
In their first performance at the Atlas Performing Arts Center, the Bang on a Can All-Stars bring their polyrhythmic virtuosity and all-world versatility to the stage in a cutting-edge concert celebrating the core Bang on a Can Sound.
The program features an uncategorizable supermix of music from the All-Stars critically acclaimed album Big Beautiful Dark and Scary (Michael Gordon’s shimmering For Madeleine; David Lang’s kaleidoscopic sunray; Julia Wolfe’s blazing Big Beautiful Dark and Scary; Kate Moore’s pulsating Ridgeway) alongside genre-busting works by frequent collaborators Don Byron (Basquiat, Show Him Some Lub) and Thurston Moore (Stroking Piece #1).
