• Making Music: Evan Ziporyn (Part 1)

    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.
