Reviews
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... Three pieces involve video images. Michael Gordon's Gene Takes a Drink provides a sonic background to mostly pastoral images by Bill Morrison
