Bang on on a Can and the Jewish Museum present: Bonjour

Thursday, February 16, 2017 - 7:30pm

Bonjour is a low string band with drums/percussion founded in 2012 by bassist and composer Florent Ghys whose performance corresponds to the Museum's exhibition Pierre Chareau: Modern Architecture and Design. Chareau, originally from Bordeaux, rose to become one of Paris's most fashionable designers of the early 20th Century. Ghys, also originally from Bordeaux, is one of New York's most creative composer-performers of the early 21st Century. Combining basses, cello, guitars, percussion, and voices, Ghys has assembled a sizzling group of some of New York's top young musicians and Bang on a Can regulars to create an unusual sound world that's equal parts groove, melody and meditation. From jazz-laced indie-pop to ambient chamber music, Bonjour shimmers with influences that push it beyond the safety net of "new classical" music to something altogether edgy, adventurous, and even slightly art-damaged.

Michael Gordon's Rushes at National Sawdust

Thursday, January 26, 2017 - 7:00pm

Rushes Ensemble

The seven members of the Rushes Ensemble bring Rushes, Michael Gordon's inspiring piece for seven bassoons, to National Sawdust in Brooklyn on Thursday, January 26.

Rushes takes its place alongside Gordon’s Timber for expanding the boundaries of a single instrument’s repertoire into unknown (and at times, otherworldly) spaces. Like Timber, which maps new percussive territory for the simantra—a simple two-by-four slab of wood, amplified and played in a group of six to yield trance-like sonic textures—Rushes brings out tonal and timbral aspects of the bassoon that are meant to induce a quasi-meditative, almost ecstatic state, in the listener as well as the performer.

'darker' performed by St. Paul Chamber Orchestra at Liquid Music with film by Suzanne Bocanegra

Saturday, December 3, 2016 - 8:00pm

David Lang, one of America’s preeminent living composers and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for music, brings his contemplative work darker to Saint Paul for its Midwest premiere. Scored for 12 strings, darker is more of an object than a piece of music, weaving together intricate solo lines into a delicate and subtly emotional fabric. “My piece, like life, expends a lot of effort to go a very short distance,” says Lang. “From beautiful to a little less beautiful, from a little light to something a little darker.” The score to darker invites performers to add a live visual or lighting design to their performance, choosing from elements created by New York based visual artist Suzanne Bocanegra.

Sō Percussion: “A Gun Show” on the BAM Next Wave Festival

Wednesday, November 30, 2016 to Saturday, December 3, 2016

Sō Percussion with Emily Johnson
Directed by Ain Gordon

Part of 2016 Next Wave Festival

Sō Percussion (Where (we) Live, 2012 Next Wave) gives the Second Amendment a soundtrack in this affecting foray into America’s fraught relationship with guns. Taking mallets to disassembled sniper rifles and assorted drums, the musicians serve as Greek chorus, commenting instrumentally on sung and spoken texts drawn from the nightmares and nostalgia of armed experiences. Three-time Obie-winning director Ain Gordon and choreographer and performer Emily Johnson give depth to this probing work in which anger meets inalienable rights, dark memories resurface, and a contested weapon sings a bittersweet song.
