Eggs and Baskets

So very silly music

Eggs & Baskets

Who said conceptual music isn’t fun? Tom Johnson asks how many ways can 6 eggs be put into 2 baskets and showcases 3 performers presenting as much music as possible with as little effort as possible. Christopher Fox, Richard Ayers, and Damian Barbeler present works sure to entertain and infuriate with their playful critique of the art music tradition.
