John Cage’s Rozart Mix, realized by artist Aaron Dilloway.
Bard College, 1309 Annandale Road | Red Hook, NY 12571
Fully COVID-19 vaccinated visitors are invited to the John Cage Trust from noon to sunset with pre-registration required.
Newly realized this fall by former Wave Farm Residency Artist Aaron Dilloway, the installation at the John Cage Trust will be an expansive, multi-level, visual, and sonic work, with collaborating tape players including Rosie Actor-Engel, Twig Harper, C. Lavender, Quintron, Robert Turman, and John Wiese. In keeping with Cage's score, a minimum of 88 tape loops will be employed. The tape loops will be made to run on 12 reel-to-reel decks positioned in various rooms and floors of the John Cage Trust building, winding up stairs and around furniture. Visitors will be immersed in a kinetic and audible drawing. As was the case in the first performance of Rozart Mix in 1965 at Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, the content on the tape loops will include field recordings as well as voices; however, in this new iteration the sound materials will be sourced from the over 100 volunteer programmers who contribute programming on Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM. This event serves as a culminating celebration of WGXC's 10th Anniversary year.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be put on a waiting list. Interior tours are limited to 10 people at a time, scheduled in 30 minute intervals. Your interior registration includes outdoor attendance as well. NOTE: Bard College’s policy regarding unvaccinated children under 12 is that they are not allowed inside Campus buildings. They are welcome outside.
A stereo mix of the installation will be amplified outdoors as well as streamed online on Wave Farm Radio at wavefarm.org/listen from noon until sunset. There will also be a FM radio broadcast on WGXC 90.7-FM from 4-6 p.m.
This realization of Rozart Mix is made possible with support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Anthony B. Creamer III, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
