Asphalt Orchestra is an iconoclastic 12-piece marching band conceived by Bang on a Can premieres ambitious processional music from every corner of the music world, works that coax funk from the funereal and would make a halftime show sparkle with sophistication. Choreographer Susan Marshall weds parade spectacle to new pieces by Tyondai Braxton (of Battles), Goran Bregovic, and Stew and Heidi Rodewald, and arrangements of songs by Björk, Meshuggah, Mingus, Nancarrow, and Zappa.

Commissioned by Bang on a Can with generous support from the Rockefeller Foundation’s New York Cultural Innovation Fund and by Lincoln Center for Lincoln Center Out of Doors.(Source)
