About

'We no longer deal with 'old media' or 'new media'. We now have to think through what it means to be living with more media. - Lev Manovich, Info-Aesthetics (2008)

The musicians' task is to mirror the actions of the figures in the video score in such a way that sound is produced on their instrument. Each full run-through of the piece in rehearsal is recorded; each recorded take is layered directly on top of another to create a tape track that accompanies the ensemble in live performance.

The lower-right panel is a video of this piece in live performance. The remaining three panels are the score: each musician follows one panel (clockwise from lower-left: piano, electric guitar, marimba).
