Today, in celebration of what would have been John Cage’s 100th birthday year, we are staging his score, 33 1/3. participatory score, which features a room full of interactive turntables and vinyl records, was conceived of by John Cage during a residency at the University of California at Davis in 1969. For this work museum visitors are encouraged to take on the role of DJ and create a musical composition by freely playing records to perform the work.
We have records generously on loan from UW Libraries Special Collections and records that were part of the B-Side. The performance will continue on throughout the day until right before the museum closes at 9 this evening.
