Bang on a Can All-Stars
Music by Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe
Directed by Michael Counts

 

The tank is full, the top is down, and three composers have their collective hand on the dial in this euphoric musical road trip celebrating 30 years of downtown music collective Bang on a Can. Returning to the collaborative spirit of the group’s origins, founders Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe flood the waves with an original mash-up of wind-in-your-hair tunes that capture the sublime exhilaration of freedom and possibility. Performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars, with stunning scenic design by projection artist CandyStations (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent) and stage direction by Michael Counts, Road Trip is a tribute to journeys of all sorts, and the people who make them. There is a road, but it is no simple highway.

“..the composers at the heart of the Bang on a Can collective—Julia Wolfe, Michael Gordon, and David Lang—have sustained what may be the most convivial vanguard in modern musical history.”
