Encore is a performer/audience endurance project that makes use of audio manipulation. Milton performed a live lip synch followed by a ten minute vocal finale. The final note of the song was digitally altered to produce the illusion of an absurd vocal climax. Key audience members were planted in the crowd to lead a performance of endless applause that paralleled the mimed grandeur of the held note.
