This mix takes 272 one-minute pieces by artists from over 40 countries and nearly 25 languages and creates a 133-minute piece of radio art through various editing and layering techniques. Some works stand front and center as a whole - sometimes appearing later, possibly in part, deeply buried in the mix - while others have only a few fleeting seconds that pass by never to be heard from again. In discussing "Variations IV," John Cage used to refer to it as a kind of "ecumenical" work. A similar description could be used here as well. 60 Second Radio celebrates its 5th anniversary this year!
