Michael Gordon's 'Van Gogh' And Bang On A Can Summer Music Festival At MASS MoCA

Jul 23, 2015

  The Bang on a Can Summer Festival culminates with "Bang on a Can Plays Art," – the second week of a jam-packed music extravaganza featuring 13 concerts in 8 days, from July 25 - Aug 1.

Bang on a Can Plays Art draws inspiration from the visual art on display in the galleries at MASS MoCA. Each concert showcases music that interacts with the art on various levels – stylistically, thematically, and whimsically – performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars, Festival Artists and Fellows, and special guest Alvin Lucier.

Bang on a Can co-founder and composer Michael Gordon joins us this morning to tell us more. This Saturday the Bang on a Can All Stars play Gordon’s oratorio, Van Gogh.
