Bang On A Can Recitals on YouTube

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

MASS MoCA has started uploading the daily gallery recitals from this year’s Bang On a Can Summer Music Institute to Youtube, with matching photos on Flickr.

Better yet, you’ve still got a few days to catch the recitals in person. They take place daily at 1:30 and 4:30pm, and they’re free with museum admission.

And don’t forget that this year’s Bang On a Can residency wraps up with the annual six-hour marathon performance beginning at 4pm Saturday, August 1. Included in the performance repertoire will be George Antheil’s groundbreaking “Ballet Mecanique” and John Adams’ “Shaker Loops,” as well as compositions by Bang On a Can co-founders David Lang, Michael Gordon and Julia Wolfe.

Other composers represented during the marathon are Eve Beglarian, Thom Yorke, Fred Frith, Meredith Monk, Frederic Rzewski, John Zorn and others.

Here’s a video featuring musical saw because, umm… just because:
