Album Description

The second set at our new venue (Third Life Studios) for this part of the overall Evil Clown project. A smaller orchestra of about 12-15 people perform a pure improvisation of 50 minutes duration. To open the show, we play 4 shorter (15 minute) quartets by different Sub-Units... . We get two critical kinds of prep for the full orchestra performances of PEK scores: Concise improvisations by sometimes unique small cross sections of players from the roster and pure improvisations by the largest versions of Leap of Faith to perform without a score directing the development of the work. The only direction is for each player to lay out for about 1/3 of the total duration.
