EKG (Ernst Karel, trumpet & electronics and Kyle Bruckmann, oboe & electronics), performing Anthony Braxton's Composition No. 50 with Matt Ingalls (cl, bcl) and Gino Robair (perc).
Chris Brown (piano & electronics)

Braxton's Composition No. 50 (1975) is for two instrumentalists and two synthesizer players, with a score consisting of ten pages of sequence and visual notation. Originally performed by Braxton, Alan Strange, Roscoe Mitchell and Richard Teitelbaum, the only recording I know of is on the Splatter Trio+Debris release "Jump Or Die -- 21 Anthony Braxton Compositions 1992", on Music and Arts records.

Chris Brown will perform one of his works (he told me the title and I forgot to write it down!) for piano augmented with a Piano Bar MIDI interface and real-time computer processing. I've heard this one before and it's pretty amazing.
