Concerto for the Invisible Hand (Adam Smith)
- Matthias Kranebitter

is the sacred music of late capitalism, worshipping its last remaining god: the invisible hand of the free market, which transforms the egoism of an individual into the bene t and wealth of the community. While the invisible hand appears in the piece on different levels (a MIDI piano sound from a speaker inside the piano, a sample collection of Bud-Spencer-Movie-Punches...), the live musicians are controlled by the electronics through the monitor speakers located in front of them, giving signs for stop and go—alienated and isolated in an overfilled sound world serves as a sociological metaphor.
