Bang On A Can All Stars
Not that it's much of a surprise anymore, but Bang On A Can's annual People's Commissioning Fund performance will maintain their quarter-century-long open channel between contemporary composers and their slightly shaggier art-rock equivalents. But who needs surprises? BOAC's venerable All-Stars will feature experimental guitarist Fred Frith and the New York premiere of "How Deep Are Rivers?" by Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo, who will also perform (and perhaps detune) with the All-Stars. Pieces by two young composers, Kate Moore and Lok Yin Tang, round out the program, along with experimental pioneer Alvin Lucier's recent "Canon."
