Erik Satie's Vexations

There have been past Nuit Blanche projects here in Toronto with excellent ideas but only ruthlessly ruined by the deluge of crowds.  Martin Arnold and Micah Lexier's interpretation and visual representation of Erik Satie's legendary Vexation from NB last year is such a clever idea.  But the performance was rendered powerless by the noise and other distractions.  Obviously, I cannot find a video doing justice to Arnold and Lexier's work.  Here's an extract of Satie's great piece, piano by Alan Marks:
