Earlier this year Chris and Neil wrote one minute of orchestral music for the BBC Concert Orchestra which was performed in concert as part of "a new piece by 12 composers who have had an association with the BBC Concert Orchestra, where each composer writes one minute of music. The order of composers is determined by the roll of a dice and each composer sees the last 12 bars of the previous composer's section and then continues the piece at their will." The BBC entitled the full 12-minute piece "Stakes and Chips". You can hear the full concert broadcast tonight on BBC Radio 3 at 7 pm. UPDATE: The concert can be heard at the link below for the next five days. Pet Shop Boys' minute is between 12:51 and 13:53.
