Udlot-udlot is a piece by Filipino experimental musician and composer José Maceda. The performance of the piece in 1975 was commissioned by the Cultural Center of the Philippines and the UP Prescounarts. Involving some 800 UP high school students in a public space, the performance was an experimental practice between repression and freedom during the years of martial law in the Philippines. See the images of Udlot-udlot in the Chabet Archive.
