this is a pseudo-document of a performance that occurred on April 10, 2015 in Glendale, CA.

Two people improvised around a single guitar chord from across a dark room, and eventually played a song. The room was lit only by a projected video loop on the ceiling. Some other people took photos, some other people just listened and/or watched; two people laughed.

The only "rehearsal" for this performance took place the night of, maybe 30 minutes prior. This is documented in "prelude."

Media Jeweler and 3/4 of Slow Rose also performed at this event. Here is the facebook event page: www.facebook.com/events/577764618992859/587371788032142/

note: Listening to this "album" and looking at these photos is not the same as experiencing this performance. This is just one of many possible outcomes. You missed out, dude.
