Bang on a Can Sound

Cantaloupe Music has teamed up with publisher Red Poppy Music to launch Bang on a Can Sound, a one-stop shop for music licensing 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.

Bang on a Can Sound's licensing library of over 1000 tracks is equal parts innovative, stark, complex and minimal. Spanning from the symphonic and epic, to the intimate and expressive, this unique catalog is unlike any other music in the world. Composers and artists within the orbit of New York City's downtown music renegades represent a unique and vibrant niche spanning three decades and myriad genres. Beyond film and television, for 30+ years the Bang on a Can sound has been heard in the world's most revered concert halls by leading ensembles, and has received Grammy awards and Pulitzer prizes for music, and Oscar and Golden Globe nominations. 

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