On June 21st, 2012, as part of the Make Music New York festival, dozens of vibraphonists around the world took part in the World Wide Vexations project, a Doug Perkins and Amy Garapic joint. My part was in Phoenix, AZ with approximately eight – ten colleagues. Vexations is a piece by Erik Satie that is interpreted to be performed 840 times in a row. It is two short phrases intercut by a “theme” which only lasts around 80 seconds. Though played 840 times it amounts to around 18 hours. The AZ performance came in about 5 minutes early.
