Talk Radio for John Cage
The WFMU Hoof'n'Mouth Tabernacle Choir led by Kurt Gottschalk
Talk Radio for John Cage is a piece conceived by Kurt Gottschalk which pays 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. The piece 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 in this recording 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.
