Notes

The lightbox has 10-14 variously colored bulbs each controlled by a switch. Each player is assigned his/her own light. Invitations to start and stop are signaled by the lightbox operator by turning on and off the players light. The operator may also use cue cards to make suggestions regarding the players approach, but only at the time of the invitation. The cue cards reference registers, articulations, dynamics etc. or imply various musical techniques or attitudes.

Track 4 recorded 10/12/98

Thanks to all the musicians on this recording and the many others who have participated in other Lightbox gigs over the past 4 years. Additional thanks to the venues and organizers (Mars Williams, Brent Gutzeit, John Corbett and Michael Greenberg) who put on the performances you hear on this CD.
