John Cage’s Williams Mix Extended: Dafeldecker/Tricoli

7:30pm Tuesday 17 April

Williams Mix Extended is a new interpretation of John Cage’s Williams Mix by Werner Dafeldecker and Valerio Tricoli, originally scored for magnetic tape in 1952. Approaching the original score from a contemporary perspective, this new interpretation of Williams Mix contains a close analysis of the relationship between early tape music and current digital production, including video, allowing for original parameters of the score to be realised within the context of recent audio-visual technologies. Solo percussion from Callum Moncrieff
