William Lang

Trombone

Originally from Long Island, trombonist William Lang is an active performer, improviser, and teacher in New York City and Boston. He can be found playing in all setting and styles, from the avant-garde and classical to salsa and indie chamber pop. He has given unaccompanied trombone recitals throughout the United States, played concertos with large ensembles, and recorded with such artists as Philip Glass and Jónsi (of Sigur Rós.) Intensely passionate for chamber music, he regularly performs alongside his groundbreaking ensembles loadbang (an original and unique group of musicians interested in cutting edge music) and the Guidonian Hand (a trombone quartet dedicated to breaking boundaries within the brass community.) He is also a member of the Boston Microtonal Society, where he explores the definition of pitch and technique, working alongside like-minded composers.
