The October 8th performance at the Kenan Center is a recital that performs selections of their most recent collaborations "Tub Bunny Suite" from Basinski's recent book "Tub Bunny" and "B Minus Liver Sausage Blues" written for Basinski's exhibition "Pendemic Opems" at the Bunis Family Art Gallery in Amherst New York in April 2022.
