Concert #2 from the Xenharmonic Praxis Summer Camp

link to video

I was invited to spent two weeks in the mountains of West Virginia eating, breathing and living microtonal music.
The video is from the 2nd concert organized during the camp at the Gesundheit! Institute in Hillsboro, West Virgina.
I met a lot of really great and famous people from the microtonal world there.

If you want to download the video for posterity – go to this link:

Below is a reproduction of the concert program. I'm like to point out I built the box-like instrument used on the floor in the center of Ruckus in the Quiet Zone.  It is called a "canon".

I hope you enjoy the show,
