re: Musical Incisions

The Musical Incisions are interruptions in which all other activities of Memory Arena stop and remain inactive until the conclusion of the Incision. At this point all activities continue at the same point at which they have stopped.

Memory Arena Time is also suspended during the Musical Incision which causes a time delay. Therefore, the Memory Arena Time gradually falls behind Real World Time, resulting in a time delay approximating 35 minutes at the end of each evening.

The Orchestra of Excited Strings is seen only during the musical incision when lighting enables the viewer to view them through the Data Wall. During the Musical Incisions animated random computer text fragments are projected on the Data Wall. The intrusions into the Memory Arena are scheduled on an average of 5 to 6 breaks every 4 hours.
