about

The composition Radio Music Extended, performed by Opening Performance Orchestra, draws upon the concept John Cage brought to
bear in his piece Radio Music from 1956. In collaboration with the Tesla Museum in �Trest, whose collections include unique exhibits of radio
electronic and audio-visual devices, the 72-minute piece Radio Music Extended came into being during a private live performance in July 2018. The seven members of Opening Performance Orchestra and two alternating guests operated 13 historical radio sets, dating from between 1935 and 1961. Over the past 60 years or so, the content of the broadcast
band of the airwaves has significantly changed, yet the acoustic environment has remained highly variegated, providing a novel quality of sound.

Used radios at 8 workstations for the performers:
Empo Radio, Major 413 (1940)
Tesla Jalta 28063 'T61' (1961)
Bezdra Special 47 (1947)
