New York City-based new music chamber group loadbang is building a new kind of music for mixed ensemble of trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet, and baritone voice. Since their founding in 2008, loadbang has 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. Creating ‘a sonic world unlike any other’ (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), their unique lung-powered instrumentation has provoked diverse responses from composers, resulting in a repertoire comprising an inclusive picture of composition today. loadbang has premiered more than 450 works, written by members of the ensemble, emerging artists, and today’s leading composers.
In Residues, they present new works for the ensemble featuring a new work for the ensemble of the same title by Iranian-American Daniel Reza Sabzghabaei as well as music by Chen Yi, Christina George, Marti Epstein, and Paula Matthusen.
