.. to end xxxtenxious moments
stretch as a treat- indeed,
we are in for a very special happening -

Leif Inge's 9 Beet Stretch

Ludwig van Beethoven's 9th symphony stretched to 24 hours, with no pitch distortions. 
Leif Inge will share his work @art.xxXtenxion with us in a mixed reality happening.

It is staged 24hours, simultaneously at the Städtische Galerie in Regensburg/Germany as on the 3-D platform Second Life.

Therefore we are more than happy for the special invitation of Reda Ribble and eGabelor to SimpliPrivacy - an optically exciting and challenging environment - pure pop in a huge 5th floor penthouse.

"It is unbelievably beautiful. It is a masterpiece of a masterpiece, and maybe the closest we can ever come to experiencing what the deaf Beethoven heard, or experienced, in his head." Mark Swed, The Los Angeles Times 

"That cultural statement is one of the levels 9 Beet Stretch works on, and there are others. It reveals acoustic truths you never suspected. Fantastic idea." Kyle Gann, The Village Voice

The critically acclaimed 9 Beet Stretch is an amazing 24 hour long electroacoustic concert where a massive soundscape is made out of Beethovens 9th Symphony - it is augmented to last 24 hours with no distortion in pitch. The audience has embraced this rare occasion and many have actually stayed through the 24hours concert!
