Label: Edgetone Records

Former Sleepytime Gorilla Museum drummer Moe! Staiano presents two live conducted improvisations percussion for large group recorded at the Oakland Box Theater, one short piece, "Depleted Uranium," and the 6 part Piece No.11: Two Orchestras in Separate Rooms. Staiano presided over the piece, splitting the orchestra into adjoining rooms, allowing the audience to wander from room to room to experience and participate in the show. The show was also a fundraiser to draw attention to the use of uranium as a weapon by the US in Iraq. Complex rhythmic improv using a seething but controlled orchestra of guitar, horns, brass, turntable, percussion and turntable.
