Here is what Q2 says about the group

“The versatile, 20-piece chamber band Alarm Will Sound led by Alan Pierson is made up of many stellar musicians who also perform double-duty as accomplished composers and arrangers. In this February 23 show at (Le) Poisson Rouge, Alarm Will Sound performs the music of singer, multi-instrumentalist, and ensemble member Caleb Burhans — who was the first composer featured on Q2’s Composer Introduction series, earlier this year.

The musicians of Alarm Will Sound, who are as comfortable playing arrangements of Aphex Twin as Conlon Nancarrow, bring an intelligence and sense of adventure to all of their performances. Firmly committed to music of the immediate present, the group regularly premieres new works by composers such as David Lang, Augusta Read Thomas, Michael Gordon, Dennis DeSantis and Payton McDonald — another ensemble member — in concerts all over the world.”

So, now, you don’t even have to read about them. Just go to the site, listen to the whole performance or listen to individual pieces. Then, if you like the group. there is a whole bunch of stuff that you can buy at Amazon in .mp3.
