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.
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.
