Hosted by Tom Roe.

Wave Farm artist-in-residence David Galbraith (New York) hosts live from Wave Farm in Acra. The program will feature his contribution to 120 Hours for John Cage: John Cage Reflections.

Writes Galbraith, "John Cage Reflections is a broadcast work that combines spoken word with a live performance of Cage’s Cartridge Music. An actor inspired by Cage's speaking voice will read text adapted from a 1972 interview with Cage later published as “Reflections of a Progressive Composer on a Damaged Society.” David Galbraith and James Galbraith will perform the Duet for Cymbal version of Cartridge Music. Since both the voice and electroacoustic parts will be composed using the Cartridge Music chance procedures involving graphical shapes and transparencies with dots, circles, lines and a circle marked like a stop-watch, the parts will at times overlap and compete volume-wise. Cartridge Music was included in the David Tudor 39th birthday concert in 1965, and on the program for a John Cage 75th birthday public performance in New York. “Cage was the first composer (with his Cartridge Music of 1960) to realize the potential of an electronic music made live in the concert hall,” wrote Michael Nyman in his book Experimental Music: Cage and Beyond."
