Each composer was asked to make his or her own idiosyncratic form of dance music, to redefine what it means to create music for dancing. The second half of the concert features three classics from Bang on a Can history by Annie Gosfield, Arnold Dreyblatt and Glenn Branca, with a rare performance of Branca's massive "three dimensional" Movement Within, written specifically for the Bang on a Can All-Stars, in his unique tuning system and on his own original instruments. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=353547 Merkin Concert Hall At Kaufman Music Center Merkin Concert Hall At Kaufman Music Center
