The Bang on a Can All-Stars, with their unparalleled musicality, their international touring, award-winning CDs and far ranging commissioning programs, have become one of the most powerful ambassadors for contemporary music in the world.
Formed in 1992, the Bang on a Can All-Stars are recognized worldwide for their ultra-dynamic live performances and recordings of today’s most innovative music. Freely crossing the boundaries between classical, jazz, rock, world and experimental music, this six-member amplified ensemble has consistently forged a distinct category-defying identity, taking music into uncharted territories. The All-Stars record on Cantaloupe Music and have released past recordings on Sony, Universal and Nonesuch.
Together, the All-Stars have worked in unprecedented close collaboration with some of the most important and inspiring musicians of our time, including Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, Brian Eno and others. Recent project highlights include Field Recordings, a major new multi media project featuring up to 18 commissioned works by composers from all over the world. With great ovations this project has been recieved all over the world and this year it will be presented at the 3-year Anniversary Concert of Liepaja Concert Hall Great Amber.
