New York-based new music chamber group loadbang is building a new kind of music for mixed ensemble. Since their founding in 2008, their unique lung-powered instrumentation (bass clarinet, trumpet, trombone, baritone voice) has provoked diverse responses from composers, resulting in a stylistic palette ranging from whistled Brazilian rhythms and microtonal jazz standards to the decoupled and deconstructed sounds of the second modernity. They have been praised as ‘cultivated’ by The New Yorker, ‘inventive’ by the New York Times and called a 'formidable new-music force' by TimeOutNY. Composers that have written for them include David Lang, Hannah Lash, Andy Akiho, Chris Cerrone, Alex Mincek and more.
