    Oh my. How I would like to be able to attend this festival. And not just for the Zappa.

    I know you will go there to hear some really fine modern music, performed by a really fine modern music ensemble, conducted by a really fine (and great) conductor – and you can throw your underpants onto the stage as well! Exciting!

    Seriously, this seems very interesting, but the atmosphere is sort of stuffy establishment, don’t you think? And those fierce ZFT copyright notices and overused moustaches don’t loosen up things, either.

    But any chance to hear Ensemble Modern perform Zappa and the rest of their repertoire is more than welcome…

    Does anyone know if those glimpses of Density 21.5 and Octandre are from the Rage and Fury tapes?
