Notes & Reviews:

"One of the things I like about this disc is that all the pieces try to take classical music someplace it doesn't usually go," declares David Lang, the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer who co-founded the experimental classical music festival 'Bang on a Can'. 'Pierced' is an unconventional concerto, jazzy and ominous; 'Heroin' resets Lou Reed's 'dangerous' Velvet Underground song; 'Cheating, Lying, Stealing' is a calling card for the Bang on a Can All-Stars; the trance-inducing 'Wed' commemorates the memory of visual artist Kate Ericson.
