Zeitgeist's presents a performance and casual discussion on Karlheinz Stockhausen's Mikrophonie, a classic 1960s electro-acoustic work for large amplified gong and six players. Two percussionists play a large gong with a variety of implements, another pair of players use hand-held microphones to amplify subtle details and noises, and the last two players run soundboards that filter and manipulate the sounds picked up by the microphones.
