David Lang's Cheating, Lying, Stealing on Rock Band 2

A strange amazing world we live in when David Lang's classic postminimalist piece "Cheating, Lying, Stealing" is available on ROCK BAND 2!? Normally with these guitar-heroey video games, I would grumble under my breath that the time spent mastering it could have been spent learning to play an actual instrument, but in this case, it's not only exposing unlikely audiences to contemporary classical music, but probably honing their arhythmic rhythm skills as well.

Blurb from Bang on a Can here.
