Day-Long Duet
(The Day The World Went Away)

April 24-25, 2016
Henco Gallery, Asheville, North Carolina, US

A continual, perpetual, non-stop, 24-hour performance of the final portion of the Nine Inch Nails song "The Day The World Went Away." (The lyrics are "Na na na / Na na na / Na na na na / Na na na.")

Curt Cloninger and a rotating roster of artists took turns performing as part of an ongoing, staggered, tag-team collaboration. The music did not stop.

The performance was part of Interlude, a festival co-hosted by the Asheville Media Arts Project and Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center.
