About Bang on a Can All-Stars

The Bang on a Can All-Stars is a touring and recording offshoot of its parent organization, Bang on a Can. More a festival than a recording ensemble, Bang on a Can emerged in the 1990s to bridge the gap between avant-garde and popular music, and the All-Stars have an impressively large recording catalog. The members of Bang on a Can All-Stars are Robert Black, Mark Stewart, David Cossin, Vicky Chow, Ken Thomson, and Arlen Hlusko. Both in performance and on recordings, the work of the Bang on a Can All-Stars is marked by collaboration with a wide variety of artists. The group gained wide attention for its 2015 recording of Wolfe's composition Anthracite Fields and for one of Meredith Monk's Memory Game in 2020. In 2022, the Bang on a Can All-Stars joined Terry Riley for a recording of the latter's Autodreamographical Tales.
