For the legendary company’s 30th anniversary, Bang on a Can founders Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe and David Lang engaged Michael Counts to help conceive and direct the most technologically advanced and highly produced staged concert that they’ve ever undertaken. The result was Road Trip – a cross between a rock or EDM spectacle and a traditional contemporary music concert that featured an extensive and cinematic multi-screen video projection, a complex environmental lighting design, smoke, lasers, and more. The show was commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music and premiered within the prestigious Next Wave Festival in 2017 after a preview presentation at LA’s newly renovated Ford Amphitheater. The production will tour in 2019 and beyond.
