Koncertas Stan Brakhage Prisiminimui consists of a live recording from a benefit show held at New York's Anthology Film Archives on April 12 2003 where the quintet line-up was bolstered by the addition of percussionist Tim Barnes (Tower Recordings et al).

The performance is one of their most fully-dilated navigations of zoned free improvisation, with extended breaths of silence cut up with explosive string action and clusters of magnetic silhouette. Last track is one of the most ferociously locomotive slow-burners of their entire career, with an almost Charalambides level of heavy gravity cut up with tortuous peaks of Evol-style grime while Shelley and Barnes harvest huge snowballs of rhythm.
