Indeterminacy 144

David Tudor and I went to Hilversum
in Holland to make a
recording for the Dutch radio.
We arrived at the
studio early and there was some
delay. To pass
the time, we chatted
with the engineer who was to work
with us. He
asked me what kind of music he was
about to record.
Since he was a Dutchman
I said, “It may
remind you of the work of Mondrian.”

When the session was finished
and the three of us were leaving
the studio, I
asked the engineer what he
thought of the music we had
played. He
said, “It reminded
me of the work of Mondrian.”
