Initial digital recordings were made of The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in rehearsal for a performance of The Messiah. Samples and tape loops were made of the orchestra tuning up and then fed into the tape machines. The results of this process were then used as the basis for further improvisation with electric guitar, trumpet, piano, toy piano, Oberheim synthesizer, a test oscillator and an RE501 tape echo.
