Our goal to play VEXATIONS 840 times in a row has people talking. Here's some of the press we've received:
You know the neighborhood kid who comes to your door and asks you to sponsor him/her in a marathon. You pledge a quarter a lap - a buck if you're especially generous or confident the kid won't get far - and you pay up based on how many laps/miles they finished. Read the rest.
How hard can it be to play a one-minute piece of music on the piano - or violin, guitar, tuba, oboe, basically your instrument of choice? Wait, what? Play it 840 times? Well that's a different story. Read the rest.
Find out why Tucson's "alt-classical" ensemble ChamberLab will perform a century-old piece of music by Erik Satie 840 times in a row in December during an event called "The Vexathon". Listen.
