the details of this are not so clear.

the players, including myself, performed this live, improvised soundtrack during a screening of the k-foundation film 'burning a million quid' at Ferens Art Gallery, Hull, UK in March 2003.

this is, as yet, the only one of the soundtracks requested by the K-Foundation for the unrealised DVD release to be available. The event was attended by members of the K-Foundation & extracts from the draft book were read at the start of the performance. The recording begins very quietly for some time before culminating in a sustained sound overload, which eventually caused the entire sound system to cut out.

I also recorded the event via a separate mixer - inputing some of the performers.

some of the performers got paid, some didn't

the sound here is owned 100% by those who made it & is being released as a free download with the permission of all those I was able to contact.
