Williams Mix Extended is a new interpretation of John Cage's Williams Mix by Werner Dafeldecker and Valerio Tricoli,
originally scored for magnetic tape in 1952. Approaching the original score from a contemporary perspective, this new interpretation
of Williams Mix contains a close analysis of the relationship between early tape music and current digital production,
allowing for original parameters of the score to be realized within the context of recent audio technologies.
Williams Mix Extended has an duration of 32 minutes whereas the original is 4 minutes and 15 seconds long.
The difference between the two durations is generated by the transposition of the score´s specifications from tape to digital audio software.
To complete Williams Mix Extended a library of approximately 2000 different sounds are used, all recorded by Dafeldecker and Tricoli.
