In a sideshow by the sea

Video, PAL, stereo, 6 minutes, 2010

Based on a audio track:
(excerpt from) John Cage Meets Sun Ra

Alternate performances of Sun Ra-Yamaha DX-7; and John Cage-voc.
Sideshow by the Sea, Coney Island, NY, June 8th. 1986

We are sitting inside the Sideshow By The Sea theatre in Coney Island, NY, in June 1986.
It is a concert, Sun Ra and John Cage are performing together, separately.
Sun Ra is testing his new synthesizer, and then, after a pause of several minutes,
John Cage will start again to sing in a very gentle way.
But we are still in the middle of the pause.
It is a warm summer evening. The door is open.
You can hear the humming of the amplifiers, and the voices of the people outside walking by.
Some unusual thoughts come to our mind.
