Crossover noises: Bang-on-a-Can

Posted on: November 3, 2013

Bryce Dessner, guitar player of  US rock band The National is currently the composer-in-residence of the Muziekgebouw in Eindhoven.

As part of the Composer in Residence series of the Muziekgebouw, a concert will be given on Thursday 07/11 by New York all-star band Bang-on-a-Can, who will be joined by special guest Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth fame.  Bang-on-a-Can All Stars have included several contemporary composed guitar pieces in their repertoire, such as the Electric Counterpoint classic of Steve Reich:

The pieces played are made by contemporary composing rock guitarists, including Fred Frith, one of my all-time favorite guitar players:

  • Bryce Dessner (The National) – Gloucester 27
  • Bryce Dessner (The National) – Shut your Eyes against the Wind
  • Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) – Stroking Piece #1
  • Fred Frith – Snakes & Ladders
  • David Longstreth (Dirty Projectors) – Instructional Video, Matt
  • Damon, Breakfast at J&M
  • Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) – How Deep are Rivers

With this program, this may be a very interesting first crossover concert of Bryce Dessner’s stay as a composer-in-residence IMHO.  So I will be there.
