I'm extremely proud to announce the launch of a brand new interactive website version of John Cage's 49 Waltzes for The Five Boroughs.

I've been working for a few months with Oscar Henriquez to develop the site as a celebration of John Cage's 100th birthday and an homage to the great city of New York.

It turned out beautifully and has been a true joy exploring the city and listening to it in a new way. We are inviting submissions from anyone making any sort of documentation at any of the 147 addresses in Cage's iconic 1977 score. More about our concepts can be found on 49waltzes.com

Visit an address, spend some time listening, and send it our way.

Happy Birthday John.
