Program Notes

Experience the thrill of a single electron racing through a circuit at mind-boggling speeds! The wild ride begins immediately with two sets of bells creating an invigorating metallic backdrop. The intensity continues until a blackout occurs without warning, shutting power down to the entire circuit. The simple effect of a water gong creates the effect of a machine grinding to a halt. The circuit soon becomes live again as the electron races on.
