Notes

Released in 6-panel Digipak.

Comments on the pieces are from the scores and the Edition Peters catalogue (1962) of Cage's works.
• Track 1: 1958. Radio, 2 open-reel tape machines, synthesizer, voice. 'The use of this material is not limited to tape muisc but may be used freely for instrumental, vocal and theatrical purposes.' 'Aria, to be used alone or with Fontana Mix.'
• Track 2: 1952. Tape. 'This is a score for making a recording on tape, using as material any 42 phonograph records.'
• Track 3: 1960. Sine wave oscillator, record player, synthesizer, radio. 'Certain operations may be found impossible eg. 3 or 4 at once. Let the operator do what he can without calling in assistants.'
• Track 4: 1960. Phonograph cartridges, auxiliary sounds. 'For amplified 'small sounds'. A cartridge is an ordinary phonograph pick-up in which customarily a playing needle is inserted.'
• Track 5: 1962. Amplified objects/action. 'In a situation provided with maximum amplification (no feedback), perform a disciplined action… Fulfilling in whole or part an obligation to others.'
• Track 6: 1960. Record player, cassette tape, radio, spoken word. 'Parts to be prepared from the score, with or without the extra materials; any number of players, any kind and number of instruments.'
