Imaginary Landscape #4 by composer John Cage will be performed at the upcoming Tyndall Assembly concert on Thursday 20th April. The work is for many radios, with players alternating the frequency and volume throughout the performance. As a score for the work is difficult to locate, so I have decided to interpret the outline of the work and apply specific conditions for the Tyndall performance:
- All players select a fundamental frequency (such as 728 KHz) which they may return to from time to time (as a point of reference.)
- Players may choose the same frequency as each other, which may lead to unsion during performance.
- Players are encouraged to alternate volume levels and frequency as much as they wish throughout performance.
- Players should consider silence.
