WFMU Music Director Brian Turner says: "Getting to be a soprano guitar amongst Rhys Chatham's 200-guitar army in the Crimson Grail piece at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park was the personal experience that ruled for me, especially as a longtime Chatham fan. You watch this video and you see some serious guitar faces being made, but I have to say that practicing for a week and watching this all come together outdoors where all the sections collided in this total harmonious dissonance made you feel total rock salvation. Being a player inside the blender as it escalated upwards was mind-boggling. Even the widow of the Lincoln Center Outdoors' founder stopped me on the way out to say how insane it was to see that event in the park."
