Bang on a Can Marathon 2013

Bang on a Can returns to lower Manhattan’s River to River Festival with its annual incomparable super-mix of boundary-busting music from around the corner and around the globe.

Co-presented by LMCC and Pace University as part of the River To River Festival 2013.

Starting at 12 noon till 5pm, Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation will host its unique Street Studio: a mobile recording studio equipped for passersby and Marathon musicians alike to spontaneously create and record original music.
