Program Notes
Every other performance, this piece is entirely improvised. Every other performance, the performers follow the through- composed score. Every other other performance, this piece is played at 80% intent and 50% resentment. Every other other other performance, the members of this piece trade parts. Every 10 performances, the members of the ensemble are playing a cruel joke on the composer and the audience. Every 12, the 5th page of every part is swapped for a page from one of J.S. Bach’s Sonatas or Partitas for Violin. On any performance where it is the ensemble’s second time performing that day, the music is to be read in retrograde inversion. Every peformance indoors must be done at double tempo. In the event that performers were not fed prior to performing, they may play noise whenever they may choose. If ███████████████████████████████████████, the piece should be played in near-complete darkness. If you cannot tell the difference if you cannot beat ‘em join ‘em then does it even matter?
