    Glenn Kotche and Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo joined the Bang on a Can All-Stars this past Saturday at the University of North Carolina's Memorial Hall in Chapel Hill for a marathon performance that featured new works by Glenn.

    Bang on a Can's Evan Ziporyn told the University's Daily Tar Heel prior to the event that Glenn had written "some very ambitious music that reflects his diverse interests." Tar Heel staffer Nash Roberts reports that Glenn found inspiration for the new pieces at the University's Southern Folklife Collection, which he toured in between Wilco performances at the school in 2006.

    "On that tour I witnessed a vast collection of media documenting Southern and American culture and music," Glenn tells the paper. "I thought it would be especially fitting for a new work based on this music to be premiered at the home of such an important collection."
