Notes

Notes on Europera 3 by John Cage;
To make a theatre which is the synergetic coming together of it's seperate elements, the lighting, the singing, the piano-, the record playing, the brief intrusion of a composite tape of more than a hundred operas superimposed (truckera), brief flashes of light in the performance space, the movement of the singers from one spot to another in the performance space or to the chairs nat the back of the stage: 75 lights, 3256 cues. Six singers each singing six arias of his or her own choice (Gluck-Puccini). 140 1-16 measure excerpts from Liszt's Opera Phantasien two pianists; fragments of 300 78's played on 12 electric victrolas by six composers, the performance of truckera, the performance of the lighting, 70 minutes.

Notes on Europera 4 by John Cage;
2 singers, in the performing space or in the distance, 25 lights 275 cues, complete Phantasien, played so as to be suggested rather than heard, only one pianist, finally the actually played actually touched; rubato, a single victrola, one composer, winding it up and playing it, the performance of truckera in another part of the building, no lights on the stage, lights on the walls, lights on the ceiling perhaps, 30 minutes.
