卡式錄音帶裡預錄了不同的音高和隨意的旋律,現場的音樂家們跟據隨機相遇的音高即興反應。

The performance is made by two musician and one installation, the installation is made of four tape cassette with pre-recordered piano sound, one motorized aluminum turning weel, one acoustic guitar with no strings, one 100mW spot light, one apmplifier, one steam rice pot, one solar board and my pianola, all these collected parts make sound loop and they are all played at the same time, each of them have different loop period so the sound scenario is keep changing, me and the violinist "communicate" and improvise with those parts during their loop.
