Preceded by a brief conversation about the film's music, and a short performance by percussionist Phillip O'Banion of Stop Speaking (2011) for snare drum and digital sounds, by the brilliant American composer, Andy Akiho. Akiho's piece portrays an interaction of Human vs. Macintosh laptop with Microsoft Office  .... a later, tamer cousin of "HAL" from 2001: A Space Odyssey:  "Open the pod bay doors, HAL."
