Michael Abels

Composer Michael Abels has been writing music for a long time.  But he catapulted into our consciousness almost overnight with his beautifully subtle and terrifyingly dynamic scores for the hit films “Get Out” and “Us.”  For this performance he is composing a new work, Anguish from “Falling Sky,” for the Bang on a Can All-Stars pianist Vicky Chow.
