On this episode, we have a special audio project.  To observe the tenth anniversary of Dia:Beacon, we have an old timey radio drama...kind of.....ok, not really.  What it is is a documentation, through interpretive readings, of reviews of Dia:Beacon which have been posted on Yelp.com over the past eight years.  Yelp, in its current form has been around since early 2005 and the first posted review of Dia:Beacon dates to April of that year, and to date, 80 reviews have since been posted.  This project documents these reviews as a collective barometer of this museum 10 years after opening its doors.

As with the authorities in the film Rashomon who try to discern the truth behind a murder through the incongruous testimonies of the participants, our aim is to triangulate the essence of the museum through the divergent first hand accounts of visitors who thought enough of their experience to voice their critiques and share their suggestions online for the benefit of the rest of us. 

We begin this episode with audio from the Decomposer project, performed as part of Collaborative Concepts annual Farm Project at Saunder's Farm in Garrison, NY on Aug 29, 2013.  This year's  exhibit remains on view through Oct 26. 

Kay Larson's book, Where the Heart Beats: John Cage, Zen Buddhism and, the Inner Lives of Artists, planted a seed in Thomas Huber's mind which grew into Decomposer, with the help of Matt Frieburghaus and Laura Kaufman.  An exhibit revolving around John Cage's work 4'33" went on exhibit this week at the Museum of Modern Art in New York - There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage's 4'33"
