The Big Bang…On A Can

Bang On A Can Marathon took place in The World Financial Center this year with music flowing non-stop for more than 12 hours defying all borders between genres and really making it hard for music lovers to take a break.  Every time a new group emerged on the stage, we got swept away and taken by their ingenuity and brilliance.

The photos show the following performers in the event. I only stayed for 10 hours and took a few walks to stretch my legs!

Slagwerk Den Haag
JACK Quartet
Talea Ensemble
Moritz Eggert
Vernon Reid, Mazz Swift, and Leon Gruenbaum
Mira Calix

And of course:Bang on a Can All-Stars

Can’t wait for the next Big Bang…On A Can!

the Silent Camera is Kinan Faham's photography moniker. Kinan is a software guy with interests in visual and sonic arts. Through photography and video, he captures the extraordinary in the ordinary. Kinan was born in the oldest continually inhabited city in the world and moved to the states for graduate school. For him, art is a hobby that also forms an essential, inseparable part of his being.. The inspiration for the Silent Camera name came from contemporary composers Arvo Part and John Luther Adams whose compositions defy complex structures in favor of meditative voices and can be linked to space/visual stimuli.
