about

"In Determining John Cage" is an adaptation of Cage's 1959 performance-essay "Indeterminacy." It was produced for "120 Hours for John Cage," a celebration of Cage's works for radio organized to mark Cage's centennial and curated by Wave Farm/free103point9 and the John Cage Trust.

The piece consists of 10 stories and 10 musical compositions written independently from each other and paired at random. Because the pairing of story and music is determined by chance, it is unlikely that any two versions will be exactly the same.

This version was broadcast in September, 2012 on WGXC radio.

The individual music and voice tracks are included in the hopes that listeners will create their own version of the piece. Any order and pairing of music and story (as long as the mechanism that determines the pairing operates by chance) should be considered a legitimate performance.
