12 record turntables and at least 300 randomly selected 33 1/3 RPM phonograph records
Come and take part in a participatory performance and recording session, convened by Interactive Agents (Robin McGinley & Philip Arnold) of this legendary and rarely performed work.
Conceived by John Cage in 1969, as an audience participation event, the score calls for the performance space to be filled with 12 record players and hundreds of records. The audience are then encouraged, in the manner of DJs, to make their own selections and play the records freely, thus performing the work. In this way, a new music emerges from the simultaneous, and ever-changing mix of recorded sound.
