With Big Beautiful Dark and Scary, the All-Stars show off their unstoppable and loud virtuosity in a return to the core Bang on a Can sound - including premiere recordings of music by Louis Andriessen, David Longstreth (of Dirty Projectors), Conlon Nancarrow, Kate Moore, Michael Gordon, David Lang, Julia Wolfe, and Evan Ziporyn. It is also the first All-Stars album to feature the current line-up: Ashley Bathgate, cello; Robert Black, bass; Vicky Chow, piano; David Cossin, percussion; Mark Stewart, electric guitar; and Evan Ziporyn. More info is available on the Cantaloupe website.
This album will be physically released on Cantaloupe Music February 28, 2012 and includes four short films by Dutch video artist Marijke van Warmerdam. It is available for pre-order now on Amazon.
