Loadbang’s Collaborative Commissioning Fund is designed to commission BIPOC composers with direct funding from the ensemble. This frees loadbang from necessarily depending on the unreliable nature of traditional foundation funding. White supremacy in New Music has sidelined and excluded BIPOC composers, despite the important historical and contemporary artistic contributions they have made to the field. Loadbang believes it is absolutely essential that the experiences, voices, and musical art of these composers are heard and acknowledged as an integral part of our musical landscape. This fund gives loadbang the flexibility and autonomy to independently commission BIPOC composers and compensate them appropriately for their work.
