The Bang on a Can People’s Commissioning Fund is a radical partnership between artists and audiences to commission works from adventurous composers. Since the Fund began in 1997, fans of new music have joined together to commission dozens of new pieces of music for the Bang on a Can All-Stars, making PCF one of the most anticipated and reliable launching pads for emerging composers in NYC and beyond. On March 14, the Bang on a Can All-Stars will perform world premieres of new commissions by cutting-edge multimedia composer Anna Clyne, hypnotic electronic guru Dan Deacon, Icelandic electronica minimalist Jóhann Jóhannsson, and electro-acoustic experimentalist and installation artist Paula Matthusen, as well as avant-indie rocker Tyondai Braxton’s Trems and cross-genre composer/performer Fay Kueen Wang’s Weltinseln featuring Wang performing alongside the All-Stars.

Ecstatic Music Festival | Joseph C. Phillips, Jr. & Imani Uzuri with Numinous

Uzuri will premiere an original multi-voice and multi-instrument musical suite, Placeless, performed by Numinous and special guests, exploring the expansive themes of home and “place” inspired by the Psalms, the writings of Sufi mystic and poet Rumi and the folk hymnody African-American Spirituals. Numinous will also premiere Changing Same, a six-movement composition by Phillips that musically reflects a liberating pursuit of individuality where contemporary classical music melds with Prince, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, Chuck Brown, Barry White and Gamble and Huff to create an evocative, intimate and affirming musical and cultural “memory book.” The composition will be recorded in the spring of 2013, with plans to be released on New Amsterdam Records. In addition, Numinous will perform a short new collaborative five-movement composition by Uzuri and Phillips inspired by universal themes of awe and humility.
