Perceps was performed on August 18. It is a piece of indeterminate length based on sounds produced by bowing a pedestal-mounted copper ashtray, which are recorded in real time on the digital macchina ricordi.

Vidéovox was performed on August 19. This 15 minute piece uses voice and image. The digital macchina ricordi constitutes the instrumentation including, for the first time ever, the macchina ricordi for video.
