Performance art violin nerve stimulator pre-programmed impossible rhythm
July 8, 2014 3:05 AM   Subscribe

I saw a video a while ago of a cool and unsettling performance, and I don't know how to find it again. Two musicians are wearing nerve-stimulating things around their wrists, which is moving their muscles involuntarily, playing a piece of music in perfect unison.

I think it might have been a violin and double bass, and possibly in a gallery in New York (???). They had pre-programmed some music into a computer, which was making their fingers play some fast sections which were supposedly impossible otherwise. They were playing in freakishly perfect unison. I can't seem to find it via Google, can you help me?
