Tonight at 7:30, EMPAC will present Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and Bang on a Can co-founder David Lang’s orchestral work, "darker." The evening-length composition will be performed by Ensemble Signal, with live projections by visual artist Suzanne Bocanegra.

David Lang is one of America's most performed composers. He is co-founder and co-artistic director of New York’s legendary music collective Bang on a Can. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the Pulitzer Prize, a Grammy Award, an Academy Award and Golden Globe nomination, a Bessie Award, Obie Award, and more.

  Visionary guitarist Kaki King has been hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself.” Over the past 10 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released six extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats and more, and has contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks.

She will be at The Egg in Albany, NY to perform her provocative, moving, beautiful, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body – a groundbreaking new multi-media performance that uses an innovative projection mapping technique as her guitar seemingly takes on a living, breathing existence of its own.
