New York City-based new music chamber group loadbang is building a new kind of music for mixed ensemble. 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. Their unique lung-powered instrumentation (trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet and 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.

We're so thrilled and honored to have received a CMA Classical Commissioning Grant in 2016 which resulted in a new fantastic work by Mark Applebaum titled Administocracy.  It just received it's premiere, and you can see the video here.  Enjoy!
