As a composer and performer, Bang on a Can All-Stars co-founder Evan
Ziporyn has expanded the boundaries of clarinet playing. He has also
explored the interaction of different musical cultures, forming in 1993
Gamelan Galak Tika to perform new music—including his own—that uses both
Western and Balinese instruments by American and Balinese composers.
In advance of his Making Music concert on October
30, Evan Ziporyn spoke to Carnegie Hall about his musical
inspiration, development, and direction. In the fourth installment of
the interview, the composer talks about three of the pieces—Tsmindao
Ghmerto, Hive, and In Bounds—that will be
performed during the concert.
