Bang on a Can Super-Fans Arrive from Belgium

Today, we spoke briefly to two contemporary music-loving patrons at a Bang on a Can recital. They have traveled to MASS MoCA from Belgium to soak up every part of the Summer Music Festival.

Super-fans

What are your names?

Ariane and Rorbert. (Ariane speaking) I am a musician and an artist. I use cello and singing for healing – art therapy. Robert is not an artist, but we both enjoy music very much. Music is so important to us.

 

Where are you from?

We came from Belgium to the United States (to North Adams) for the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival. We are spending 1 month here. 1 week of this time we spent in NYC.

 

How did you hear about Bang on a Can?

We have known Bang on a Can for 5 or 6 years. We first saw Michael Gordon’s Timber years ago in Denmark. We also attended a performance of Steve Reich and Bang on a Can’s music in Toronto, Canada. We love music. We especially like to hear minimalist music.

 

What has been your favorite performance from Bang on a Can so far?

We loved Ken Thomson’s recital in the galleries. We discovered him at this concert; we did not know his music before. We also very much enjoyed Todd Reynold’s performance on violin. His harmonies are so beautiful.

 

What are you most looking forward to at Bang on a Can?

We are very excited for the concert at Windsor Lake, on Wednesday, July 25. That will be interesting.

    I caught Ken Thomson on July 18 playing in the galleries -
    extraordinary space/music experience! It created a special surreal afternoon for me and my friend, we were transfixed and stimulated!

    MassMoca – you are doing a great job to keep your fans happy!

    Thanks to you all, Elfi
