Work introduction

Between July 1966 and January 1967 the American composers John Cage (1912–1992) and Morton Feldman (1926–1987) recorded four open-ended conversations at the studios of radio station WBAI in New York. It is a twenty-minute segment from one of these "Radio Happenings" that constitutes the electronic part of my piece.

The conversation itself is punctuated by long, ponderous silences and I have utilized them as a kind of mould into which I have poured my own musical material.

(Recording used with the kind permission of Barbara Monk Feldman and the John Cage Trust).
