Reality Hacking No. 212, Ship Concert, 25th Theater Spektakel Zurich, Switzerland, 12 August 2004

Opening concert for the 25th Theater Spektakel anniversary in collaboration with the ensemble for new music zurich. The ensemble premiered RH # 212, a new composition written for the occasion. As the piece started, 8 unannounced passenger ships mysteriously appeared on the lake behind the stage. Guest musicians in the wheelhouses of the ships, equipped with stopwatches, accompanied the ensemble, performing a written score for sirens and foghorn. The performance was held despite nasty wind conditions and pouring rain. Respect to the ensemble for new music zurich who went all the way performing the show under bad weather conditions.
