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.
