Seeking Vinyl for John Cage Exhibition/Composition

In 1969, American composer, music theorist, writer, philosopher, and artist John Cage was a guest lecturer at UC Davis. During his tenure at the university, he created a unique interactive exhibition/composition called “33 1/3.” 

In September 2017, the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art will recreate “33 1/3.” In order to do so, the staff of the Museum is seeking donations of vinyl records that would be included in the exhibition’s playlist. 

On Wednesday, August 16, you can donate a vinyl album at the Manetti Shrem booth at the Davis Farmers Market from 4:30 p.m.to 8:30 p.m. 

The original “33 1/3″ exhibition contained a number of vinyl phono albums and between eight to twelve turntables. The phonographs and almost 250 records were arranged on tables around a room without chairs on which to sit. Loudspeakers were distributed around the space. The audience was given no instruction, but after a while, people began putting records on the phonographs.
