To be fair, he does seem to know what he’s in for and its relevance (from the New Yorker):

“I honestly don’t really know what is going to happen. But I believe I will feel, while doing it, kind of similar to what I go through now. There will be ups, there will be downs, there will be devastation, there will joy, there will be literal pain. Just this monotonic repetition of just the same thing, of a piece which in a way has no apparent musical content—just this staring at a wall, waiting, waiting. At some point, you lose the perspective of time—like now. You lose the perspective of an end—like now. I think at some point I will lose the hope that this will ever end—like now. Maybe I won’t make it. It’s just about surviving. Like now.”

Levit just took a break. There’s a guy online who posted a video of him playing 24 hrs straight and he never got up once. I don’t think he ate anything either. It’s on YouTube. He also mentions he played it for 35 hrs straight, once.
