Comments
This composition was part of the event called "Mewantemooseicday." A dozen phonographs and almost 250 records were arranged on tables around a room without chairs on which to sit. Loudspeakers were distributed around the space. The audience was given no instruction, but after a while, people began putting records on the phonographs. 33 1/3 was also incorporated into performances of Address and Cassette.
