For the 16th summer in a row, new music collective Bang on a Can is in residence at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass., for its three-week summer music festival and institute. Festival highlights include a preview performance of the Bang on a Can All-Stars' Road Trip, which takes place on Saturday night August 5 at 8pm. A brand-new, evening-length work composed by Bang on a Can co-founders Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe, Road Trip commemorates their 30-year collaborative journey together since founding Bang on a Can in 1987. A staged performance, Road Trip includes rock show lighting and multimedia elements. Earlier on Saturday, Bang on a Can celebrates the late musical visionary Pauline Oliveros – a longtime resident of the Hudson Valley - with a tribute concert marking her musical innovations and her "deep listening" approach.
