Hallucination City: When 99 Electric Guitars Just Won’t Do
On Wednesday, March 29, Glen Branca will perform his Symphony No. 13 “Hallucination City,” for 100 electric guitars at Disney Hall. Branca originally wrote this piece for the Y2K celebrations in Paris, hoping for an ensemble of 2,000 guitarists. When that performance fell through, he premiered the work outside of the World Trade Center in New York City with 100 guitarists.
Answer me this: Which song would you cover for an encore and why? You have 100 guitars at your disposal and you must put them all to use. Leave your answer as a comment below using your preferred contact email before noon Monday, March 27.
