This item is not in the library — it is a part of: Learning Improvisation with Music Games.

Another example performance is by Signal to Noise Ratio (the electric trio) with rules adapted also for a drum set ("smallest intervals available on your instrument"): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAL9JBfoukc
