Artist and computerized sculpture pioneer Michael Rees stars in a performance at the Matthew Barney Studio Long Island City, NY, April 2007. In the wake of his own mother's death Rees and backup singers do a rendition of the William Shatner/Ben Folds song, "Live life like you're gonna die" (opening lyrics below) before an audience of hundreds, including many NY art world notables. Brief before/after interviews with Michael bookend the performance.

Live life
Live life like you're gonna die
Because you're gonna
I hate to be the bearer of bad news
But you're gonna die
