the Bang on a Can Sound

Cantaloupe Music has teamed with publisher Red Poppy Music to launch Bang on a Can Sound, a one-stop shop for licensing innovative music within a unique and vibrant niche. Representing a revolution in classical music, the composers and musicians within the orbit of Bang on a Can, New York City’s “downtown” classical music renegades, have been creating and performing music that spans and redefines genres for three decades.

With Pulitzer Prize-winning composers, Grammy-winning recordings, and music performed on the most prestigious stages worldwide (Carnegie Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Sydney Opera House), The Bang on a Can Sound defines new, exciting and influential music.

Easily license both the publishing and master rights simultaneously for any of our recordings.
