Learn more about Bang On A Can, Julia Wolfe, and Mark Stewart.

This week we meet with experimental musicians Mark Stewart and Julia Wolfe at the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA, an amazing contemporary art museum in North Adams, Massachusetts. They give us the challenge to FIND YOUR BAND. 


1. Go through your day and notice all the sounds around you
2. Choose a group of those sounds to be your band
3. Join the band!
4. Record or document what happens and upload to your social media platform of choice with #theartassignment
5. Fame and glory (your work might be in a future episode)

The business end of Twin. In charge of landing interesting new projects, making clients happy, and coffee. A maker of beautiful music and master of oral sound effects. A secret Jim Henson nerd. Will always find ways of working smarter. Will never participate in karaoke.
