the arduous task of deciphering the drunken idiosyncratic
scrawls and near hieroglyphic tablatures proceeds, it becomes
apparent that Frankenthaler's 1957 doctoral dissertation
(in which she asserts that Tomcha's stubby fingers would
have had to have been double-jointed in three directions
in order to execute the chordal tablatures) has now been
completely refuted. Here, Prof. Nawrot grapples with a fragment
from the 'Estonian' period by performing a post-Schenkerian
deconstruction to extract the gestalt of what will be transformed
into "Nice Lice" through the process of contemporization.
Bering painstakingly prepares an exact copy of the viola
found with the remains of Tomcha & Vlasch, including beer
and sauerkraut stains and cigarette burns. This copy will
be used in the recordings.
Critical evaluation of data demands almost superhuman concentration.

throughout the Vancouver complex.

After the essence of the original music has been extracted,
the data is flown to Berlin and downloaded to a computer
originally designed to measure Brownian motion of sub-atomic
particles accelerated in a supercollider. With minor modifications,
including operation near absolute zero, the same computer
now analyzes and "contemporizes" the raw musical data. Using
progressive Euclidian interpolation and trinary bitflow
algorithms, a modern version is created-which is as close
as present technology can come to approximating what Tomcah
& Vlasch's music would sound like if it were written by
them in the 21st Century.
