Dick Higgins' The Thousand Symphonies. Four Chicago Police officers were enlisted to create the composition by blasting notes onto music paper with machine guns. The work was originally created by Higgins in 1968 as a non-destructive use of guns for purposes "other than killing Viet Cong and scattering protesters." The performance will be preceded by a short film documenting the creation of the Chicago composition.
