One night, in the summer of 1986, two larger than life avant-garde legends played together in a one-off show in Coney Island. The evening was full of cacophonous electronics and vocal experimentation punctuated by long silences, a Cage trademark. The original recording was initially edited, removing about 25 minutes of material. In 2016, independent label Modern Harmonic remastered and expanded the coveted recording, and released the entirety of the 70 minute concert as a deluxe audio/video set.
