49 Waltzes for the Five Boroughs

49 Waltzes for the Five Boroughs

← Events


May 3rd and 4th, 2013 at Eyebeam, (540 West 21st Street) and the site of Waltz 12.1.

Issue Project Room, Darmstadt Classics of The Avant Garde, Eyebeam, and the Electronic Music Foundation present HPSCHD, John Cage’s legendary Gesamtkunstwerk. A mass media orgy considered by many as the wildest, largest, and loudest musical composition of the 20th century. In concert with this incredible presentation, we are asking for people to document the comings and goings of the performance as part of Waltz 12. Record yourself attending, record people talking about the work, or just the street noise outside. By celebrating the chance intersection of these two works, we hope to document the ephemera surrounding this unrepeatable performance.

As you attend HPSCHD on May 3rd or 4th, make a video or audio recording and send it our way.

Tickets are available through Issue Project Room:
