They were written for the Kronos Quartet. Adams "prepared" a piano in the fashion of John Cage: he attached screws, bolts, rubber erasers, weather stripping, and other material to the strings of the piano. The key playing that string would then produce a given percussive sound rather than a note. Then Adams sampled the prepared piano sounds, organized them into loops, and set them up as short rhythm tracks. The idea was that, as called for in six of the dances, a member of the quartet would trigger these loops to perform them "live.

for string quartet and prerecorded soundtrack. John Adams on John’s Book of Alledged Dances. The Alleged Dances were the next pieces written after the Violin Concerto, a complex work that took a full year to compose. First performance: November 19, 1994, California Center for the Arts, Escondido, California.
