loadbang

 

Friday, March 2, 2018

8:00 p.m.

Winifred Smith Hall

New York City-based new music chamber group loadbang is building a new kind of music for mixed ensemble of trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet, and baritone voice. Since their founding in 2008, they have been praised as “cultivated” by The New Yorker, “an extra-cool new music group” and “exhilarating” by the Baltimore Sun, “inventive” by the New York Times, and a “formidable new-music force” by TimeOutNY. Their unique lung-powered instrumentation has provoked diverse responses from composers, resulting in a repertoire comprising an inclusive picture of composition today. They will be presenting works written exclusively for them by composers Lei Liang, Alexandre Lunsqui, Reiko Futing, Scott Worthington, Scott Wollschleger, and by ensemble members Carlos Cordeiro and William Lang.
