An assembly make their NTS live debut performing John Cage’s seminal 'Indeterminacy'

Originally released as an LP on Folkways in 1959, Indeterminacy presents a collection of minute-long stories written by the one of the 20th century’s most radical figures: the composer, performer, and artist John Cage. Accompanying these anecdotes, meditations and sequiturs are a series of Cage’s musical compositions, performed alongside yet totally independent from the spoken word.

The result is an intimately volatile gesamtkunstwerk, at once humble and ambitious, simple yet elusive, where the human voice, acoustic instruments and electronics occupy a singularly surreal and unpredictable landscape.
