Featuring Bang on a Can All-Stars
This concert highlights the relationship between music and image. The Bang on a Can All-Stars will perform an acclaimed work by clarinetist-composer Don Byron to accompany a screening of Eugene, an early television show by pioneering American comedian Ernie Kovacs. The program will also include Fade to Slide, a music and video piece from Bang on a Can’s brand new CD Field Recordings by visual artist Christian Marclay where short fragments of films are edited into a rapid succession of events that the musicians use as a structure for their performance. Plus works from the All-Stars’ core repertoire by Bang on a Can co-founders David Lang and Julia Wolfe.
The performance corresponds to the Museum’s exhibition Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television.
