New York City-based new music chamber group Loadbang is building a new kind of music for mixed ensemble of trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet, and baritone voice. Since their founding in 2008, they have been praised as ‘cultivated’ by The New Yorker, ‘an extra-cool new music group’ and ‘exhilarating’ by the Baltimore Sun, ‘inventive’ by the New York Times and called a ‘formidable new-music force’ by TimeOutNY. Creating ‘a sonic world unlike any other’ (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), their unique lung-powered instrumentation has provoked diverse responses from composers, resulting in a repertoire comprising an inclusive picture of composition today.
NEW MUSIC MIAMI ISCM FESTIVAL

What does ISCM stand for?
ISCM stands for International Society for Contemporary Music. It is a prestigious international network of members from around fifty countries, devoted to the promotion and presentation of contemporary music - the music of our time. Through ISCM, our members promote contemporary music in all its varied forms, strengthening musical life in their local contexts and making their music and its creators known to world. The ISCM embraces the diverse music of its many members without discrimination on the basis of race, gender, religion, or politics.
