New York City-based new music chamber group Loadbang is building a new kind of music for its mixed ensemble of trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet, and baritone voice. Since their founding in 2008, they have been praised as ‘cultivated’ by The New Yorker, ‘an extra-cool new music group’ and ‘exhilarating’ by the Baltimore Sun, ‘inventive’ by the New York Times and called a ‘formidable new-music force’ by TimeOutNY.
Loadbang has premiered more than 200 works, written by members of the ensemble, emerging artists, and today’s leading composers. Their repertoire includes works by Pulitzer Prize winners David Lang and Charles Wuorinen; Rome Prize winners Andy Akiho, Chris Cerrone and Paula Matthusen; Guggenheim Fellow Alex Mincek; leading composers including Taylor Brook, Reiko Füting, Lei Liang, Alexandre Lunsqui, and others.
