New York based New Music groups loadbang and ai ensemble will make their Boston area debut Friday, March 13th, at Lilypad. loadbang will be playing music of American experimentalist John Cage; premiering brand new arrangements of music by the Velvet Underground, written for loadbang by Pulitzer Prize winning composer David Lang; and playing new pieces by young composers Christopher Jette and Daniel Highman.

ai ensemble will be performing music of 20th century masters Iannis Xenakis and Kaija Saariaho, as well as pieces written for them by composer friends Nicholas Demaison, David Grant, and Scott Scharf.



loadbang, a New York based contemporary/electroacoustic quartet (Andy Kozar, trumpet; Philip Everall, bass clarinet; William Lang, trombone; and Jeffrey Gavett, baritone voice) met during the inaugural year of Manhattan School of Music’s one-of-a-kind Contemporary Performance program, and have been playing together ever since. In addition to commissioning over 10 pieces in the past year, loadbang performs original music, improvised and composed by all members of the band.

Founded in 2007, Alejandro and Isabel met while pursuing performance degrees at DePaul University and have worked together on several projects including performances with ensemble dal niente, TACTUS, ThingNY, and Chicago Composers Forum. Since their conception, they have already had over a dozen works written for them by emerging young composers featured on programs that also included works by established composers such as Xenakis, Lim, Saariaho, and Ran. The 2007-2008 debut season featured 9 concerts in New York and Chicago in various venues, drawing a diverse crowds. This season will feature several premieres, collaborations, and touring.
