This piece basically consists of a live electronic composition based on heating deep frozen meals with an orchestra of twelve microwave ovens attached with suction cap microphones and a conductor unsealing the packaged dishes with a pair of scissors connected to a microphone a well. The Armleder Class cooked several hundreds of meals of various types live in its studio during Rundgang at the HBK Braunschweig, as an Overture Program and then had the whole set of dishes delivered to Frankfurt by a refrigerator truck for Gasthof 2002. The actual performance then took place when the meals were served for 3 hours under the electronic amplified sounds that make the Frozen Microwave Music.
