Moe! Staiano Ensemble will perform Piece No.1: Death of A Piano (1997), with a cast of 50 musicians. This will be the first performance of Piece No.1 since 2007. The ensemble instrumentation includes guitars, bass, drums, pitched percussion, reeds, strings, whistles and a cameo of an air horn, which will also feature a piano before its death kneel destruction. Originally performed as Moe!kestra! over the course from 1997 to 2007 (with one performance held in Portland), Death of A Piano is a performance-art element of musical cacophony which blends droney notes over driving rhythms to epic, bombastic proportions.
Musicians Include: Karl Evalgelista, Matt Herman, David James, Alee Karim, Melne Murphy, Matt Robidoux, Robin Walsh, Drew Wheeler, Marc Zollinger, Tom Ferguson, Steve Lew, Don Kee, Mark Pino, Timothy Russell, Thomas Scandura, Suki O’Kane, Bruce Ackley, Ivor Holloway, Joshua Marshall, Maureen Spranza, David Slusser, Tom Weeks, Matt Ingales, Dan Plonsey, Rent Romus, Michael Zelner, Kristen Augustyn, Tom Djll, Kris Force, Jeff Hobbs, Corey Johnson, Gene Jun, Rosalie Stilford, Gabby Fluke-Mogul, Matt Montgomery, Christina Stanley, Sig Hafstrom, Rachel Hella Oakland, Rick Shinozaki, Adam Johnson, Robin Reynolds, Agnes Szelag, David Yerrington, Tim Duff, Colin Shipman, Neal Trembath, Bobby Todd, and Feona Lee Jones.
Solo Organ opens with HogWind playing second.
