On 8 August 2009, 200 guitarists performed Rhys Chatham’s A Crimson Grail. Our friends Oliver Chapoy (Saxon Shore, Warm Ghost, Helado Negro), Matthew Stone (Soporus), and Steve Hoffman (Soporus) were part of the live guitar orchestra. Nonesuch has released the performance on cd and it’s available here directly or at your local music store. This is the outdoor version for 200 guitars as opposed to the indoor French version for 400 guitars previously released by Table of the Elements.
Here’s a video released in conjunction with the live performance release:
