About the work

A presenter and eleven critics use their analytical powers to trash a new work, its performer, and its composer. Many exciting avenues are wandered down before they reach their powerful conclusion. “A shocking and thoughtful piece of music-theatre. Don’t miss this, you might be in it!”

First Performance: COMA Summer School Piano Ensemble, Jul 1998, Bretton Hall, West Yorkshire
