Forced March: David Lang

Cantaloupe kicks off Bang on a Can's 30th anniversary year with the digital release of David Lang's "forced march," from his forthcoming large ensemble CD writing on water. Recorded at Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin (famous for its connection to U2's seminal rock album The Joshua Tree) and performed by the Crash Ensemble, the piece embodies a marauding rock sensibility within a classical framework, and features John Godfrey on electric guitar, Malachy Robinson on bass, and Owen Gunnell on percussion.
