I worked my way through some of the CDs that have just turned up – late Cage, 1967 Doors, 1970s Feldman, Desertshore, 1980’s Cybotron and Travelogue which miraculously still has both CDs intact.

She is using the special guitar which goes through a box which automatically adjusts for different tunings so she doesn’t have to retune. The technician has the setlist and adjusts the box to the right tuning for each song.
