Music (to be played in any order?)

How do you listen to an album? In order or do you hit shuffle? Does the way you listen change the outcome of the music?

What if the album was one piece of music and you had the chance to shuffle individual sections, creating a whole new order to the piece every time you listened?

Bring a smart phone and some headphones and prepare to explore the world of shuffled compositions, forming your own order of pieces in the workshop!
