Programme Note
Composer Note: The three of us - Michael, David and Julia - wrote this piece together. One of us would write something, a strand of music, and then pass it to the others, who would snip it, or shape it, or twist it, or style it, or extend it, or color it, and then pass it back. It is an exciting way to make a piece, to see it grow before your eyes. And we decided to call it HAIRCUT. haircut is a concerto for the Bang on a Can All-Stars and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, commissioned by the Australian Chamber Orchestra with funds provided by Hancher Auditorium and the Sidney 2000 Olympic Arts Festival, for premiere 8 April 2000, at Hancher Auditorium, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA -- David Lang
