In 1966, an unusual event occurred in Manhattan when ten artists at the forefront of the avant-garde and thirty scientists and engineers from the Bell Telephone Laboratories pooled their efforts to create a dance, music and theatre series entitled 9 EVENINGS: THEATRE & ENGINEERING. Held in October of '66 at New York City's 69th Regiment Armory, it offered a platform for such visionaries as Lucinda Childs, John Cage and Robert Rauschenberg. The performances were later edited into ten films showcasing each artist's work, intercut with incisive and revealing interviews featuring the artists, scientists, and performers involved in the production. This particular volume highlights the contributions of composer David Tudor, who opted to play the bandoneon, and piped the music through an unusual sound and visual modification device that changed the entire look and feel of the armory. This release includes a film of the performance, archival photographs, and discussions with those involved.
