‘Cello Rock Star’ (Rolling Stone) Maya Beiser presents The Day, the European premiere of Bang on a Can composer David Lang’s new multimedia project which he created specially for her. With Maya’s live cello, 4 cellos on tape, New York’s finest actress Kate Valk’s voice, and an intoxicating litany of internet-sourced phrases, David Lang once again creates a magical soundscape.
Soundscape artist and cellist Maarten Vos is something different. He is unique and notable in his genre. With a setup onstage which makes it look like he is working in his own studio, encased by electronic devices, pedals, and buttons, he composes a new cello symphony that’s both dreamy and grasping at the same time.
