HiTEC (Histrionic Thought Experiment Cooperative) is an independent experimental orchestra founded in July of 2008 as an attempt to create a Low Classical alternative to those who worship at the temple of the fictitious and propagandistic "Golden Age" that's often used to justify the "Divine Rights" of cash-flow.

Unlike most (M)USICAL projects, the playing of this group revolves around THINKING about particular things while playing in a very open-ended way RATHER THAN necessarily playing specified physical actions.
HiTEC, Histrionic Thought Experiment Cooperative is an independent orchestra of 22 people founded by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE. It turns classic Thought Experiments such as the "Infinite Monkey Theorem" into sound waves before the very eyes & ears of its (v)audience.
