    Bang on a Can All-Stars
    Cantaloupe Music:
Nine composers, including the three founders, have come up with short works that use pre-recorded material, whether specially created or extracted from archives, as their starting points to create Field Recordings, an hour-long sequence topped and tailed with electronic sounds and turntable effects, which the musicians of Bang on a Can All-Stars played for the first time at the Barbican. Such collective projects are almost inevitably uneven, but Field Recordings has no total duds...Lang's Unused Swan unravels a mysterious, beautiful, hymn-like melody over the sounds of rattling chains and knives being sharpened.
