Bang on a Can All Stars

In part 1 of this blog entry, I discussed Milton Babbitt and Evan Ziporyn’s conflicting ideas of the future of music and discussed some of the ways that art music composers Evan Ziporyn and Steve Reich have combined rock music, world music, and the classical tradition into new, forward-thinking forms of music.

For those who don't already know, The Stone is a "not-for-profit performance space dedicated to the experimental and avant-garde" in New York City. John Zorn is the artistic director, so you know there are some good things happening there.  As an example, check out this improv set from Thurston Moore and some other NYC downtown jazzers.

Thanks to Don Mount for the video!
