    The cat’s had enough but I’m loving this. My favorite line from Wei Wei (aka VAVABOND) bio about her music: “process meaningless and fragmented sounds in a nonlinear-time approach.” Meaning, I suspect, that time travel is involved somehow.

A Global Music Celebration curated and hosted by Found Sound Nation

“The OneBeat Virtual Marathon is back! OneBeat, a singular global music exchange led by our Found Sound Nation team, employs collaborative original music as a potent new form of cultural diplomacy. We are thrilled to present this second virtual event, showcasing creative musicians who come together to make music, not war. The OneBeat Marathon brings together disparate musical communities, offering virtuosic creators a space to share their work. These spectacular musicians join us from across the globe, from a wide range of musical traditions. They illuminate our world, open our ears, and break through the barriers that keep us apart.” 

-Julia Wolfe, Bang on a Can co-founder and co-artistic director

For four hours on May 2, the OneBeat Marathon will share the power of music and tap into the most urgent and essential sounds of our time. From the Kyrgyz three-stringed komuz played on the high steppe, to the tranceful marimba de chonta of Colombia’s pacific shore, to the Algerian Amazigh highlands and to the trippy organic beats of Bombay’s underground scene — OneBeat finds a unifying possibility of sound that ties us all together.

OneBeat, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and produced by Found Sound Nation, is redefining music diplomacy.  For the past decade, OneBeat residency programs have convened young pioneering musicians from across the world to dive into the musical unknown together and build a global network of artists committed to civic discourse. This event is part a year-long celebration of online events and programs to commemorate OneBeat’s 10th anniversary.

The OneBeat Marathon will be free to stream and all Marathon performers are compensated.  But an entire ecosystem of composers and performers need our attention, our love, and our financial support!  Please consider purchasing a ticket! Doing so will help Bang on a Can to do more performances, pay more players, and share more music worldwide.

Suggested Ticket Levels


A big virtual hug and thank you for helping make this and future virtual Marathons possible.


We’d love to list you! For $25 or more, we’ll put your name on the Marathon 2020 website as Ticket Buyer. It’s that easy. Buy a ticket, be a supporter.

$100 and above

Receive the above and reserved seating! Okay, that’s silly. You can sit wherever you want. BUT $100 and above makes you a donor, not just a ticket buyer, and you can get a tax deduction and name on the Marathon website as a PRODUCER! Because you helped us produce the show, and that’s really, really important.

$1,500 – Commissions!

This is a very special category indeed. We are going to try to commission as many pieces as we can over the next few months, before we can all settle into a venue together to hear music together. So…for each $1,500 gift, we will apply the funds in equal parts to the composer, to the performer and to the Marathon 2020 fund that keeps this all going. If you want to know more about these commissions, just send an email to Tim Thomas, [email protected]. Or, when you give $1,500, we’ll contact YOU with info on your composer and when the piece will be premiered. You will also receive a signed score from the composer and our undying gratitude.

Jody Elff – live stream producer and engineer
Peter Wise – live stream coordinator
