Gigliotti's close-up documents capture the eclecticism and offbeat vibrancy of the New York performance art and music scene of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Chant a Capella includes performances created for video by Don Cherry, Nam June Paik, Charlemagne Palestine, Jackson MacLow and George Maciunas. Difficult Music includes short comedic pieces by Laurie Anderson, Julia Heyward and Michael Smith, among others.
