Concert Poster (and an early draft)
This was a piece for bowed piano. Dennis and Chad were strapped into four bows each, and Igor drove a Yamaha Disklavier (computer controlled acoustic piano) as they bowed it.

Igor and Chad play a game of "who can make the longest tape loop?" and escalate back and forth culminating in the large echo loop used throughout the third piece. Each loop is destroyed by the opposition in some creative and graphic mannor, while Dennis mixes the tracks and fills the silence with some digital loops of his own.
A large echo loop makes its way through the audience. Members of the audience are responsible for holding certain corners of the loop, and there are phones ringing in the room. Audience members answer the phone and are instructed on what to do and where to go. Some of these phone conversations are heard over loud speakers and recorded onto the echo tape loop so that the voices are heard repeating every thirty seconds or so.
