Talk Radio for John Cage

Talk Radio for John Cage is a piece conceived by Kurt Gottschalk for free103point9's "120 Hours for John Cage" broadcast marathon. The piece tribute both to Cage’s groundbreaking use of indeterminacy and chance operation in the composing as well as his use of radios in place of musical instruments. It is structured after Cage's groundbreaking composition "Radio Music," replacing the radio parts with published texts about Cage's use of radios. It was performed by WFMU DJs Bronwyn C., Dave Mandl, Mary Wing, Meghan McKee, Rich Hazelton, Scott Williams and Tamar. Recording engineered by Scott K and Mark Koch. Graphic by Emma Ball.
