This program includes music of some of today�s most talked about composers. �The Light That Fills the World� by Alaska native John Luther Adams is described by Chamber Music Magazine as �Amazingly beautiful, peaceful, and reflective--shimmering like the unusual landscape in which this composer resides�. Bang on a Can founder Michael Gordon describes his lyrical new work, �Light is Calling� for violin and electronics, as �club music for nerds�. Percussionist Eric Mellencamp will perform �The Rider�, for percussion and live interactive electronic processing by composer Joseph Kasinskas. The newest member of the ensemble, cellist Carter Dewberry, will perform David Lefkowitz�s wild solo �Possible Worlds�. Robin Cox�s music on the program will include his latest work �Drive�, and �Near Miss� which highlights the hand drumming of percussionist Erik Leckrone.
