Einstein On The Beach, the opera from which Knee Play 2 was extracted, was a seminal work that broke all the rules, being non-linear, non-narrative, episodic, dreamlike and five hourslong.Knee Play 2 is one of the number songs composed for scene changes, simply set to Organ and using numbers and solfege syllables as text.
