Tech Show #4 David Tucker II's The Prisoner of Id

There is a rubber chicken in the house. Matthew Middleton gets to wear a zoot suit, the lucky SOB. Restaurant setting, the band plays a muzak version of Barry Manilow's "Mandy," which is about as redundant as saying something twice but in slightly different ways.

"The cue is when Ray Tag lights the candle."

The piece is running so smoothly that they graciously allow the tech crew to move on so they can make up for lost time.

The split reality genre of 14/48 plays is used to great effect in this piece.
