If you are a regular reader of our blog or our iOS Magazine, you are probably already familiar with the Bang on a Can All-Stars, “part classical ensemble and part rock band” (Kenny Savelson, Bang on a Can executive director.) You might have seen them on stage—they tour extensively—but you surely have never seen them like this before… Like what?
Cartoon characters! The Bang on a Can All-Stars will appear as special guests on PBS KIDS’s popular cartoon ARTHUR, in an episode called “Binky’s Music Madness” airing nationwide on May 14, 2014 as part of ARTHUR Arts Week.
The episode will also feature Bang on a Can co-founder composer Julia Wolfe (she recorded her own speaking role for the episode.) Watch an excerpt of “Binky’s Music Madness”:
And since this is apparently not awesome enough, Bang on a Can is offering a free download of the music featured on the episode, from the All-Stars 2012 album Big Beautiful Dark and Scary.
