Formed in 1992, the Bang on a Can All-Stars are recognised worldwide for their ultra-dynamic live performances and recordings of today’s most innovative music. Freely crossing the boundaries between classical, jazz, rock, world and experimental music, this six-member amplified ensemble has consistently forged a distinct category-defying identity, taking music into uncharted territories. Performing each year across the globe, the All-Stars have shattered the definition of what concert music is today.

RNCM students join BOAC for an all live (so 10 musicians) version of Steve Reich’s unapologetic and startling piece, originally written for Kraftwerk’s opening night appearance at Manchester International Festival 2009, at the Velodrome. The Guardian described that gig as ‘a sly and subversive – but best of all, fun – celebration of modernism and modernity. Truly wonderful…’
