Maestro Axwik enters the scene in this musical drama-piece. A soundart performance with the subtitle "for Club, Axe and Chainsaw". A tribute to the craftsmen around us that build our world every day and day by day. After a short bow, the viewers are thrown right into the action where the CUBE is more than half done by the craftsmen.

The concerto had it's premier performance in Gothenburg, March 2003 on the annual Festival at the Academy of Music and Drama, Gothenburg University. The two assistants are Mikael Varela and Sebastian Paananen. The excellent Tony Blomdahl was mixing and editing all sounds in real time. The concerto was approximately 45 minutes long in the original performance. This video is an edited short version of just under 10 minutes (due to the fact that YouTube don't like longer videos, and the viewer might fall to sleep during the longer installments. Axwik - The Minister of Art & Jump - are otherwise known for his short performances (HopArt) - CUBE was going in the totally opposite direction.

The performance was afterwards compared with "Fluxus" (honestly a highly flattering judgment and opinion) and ends with a fuel injected crescendo after the loitering passages.
