Complete your John Cage & Lejaren Hiller, Ben Johnston collection. Co-made and written with Lejaren Hiller, this is Cage's first adventure in the computer world that existed in 1969. First of all the title, HPSCHD (1967-1969) is the word harpsichord reduced to the computer's six-word limit at the time. It consists of 51 electronic sound tapes and seven solo compositions for harpsichord, all played at once. If you have the means, you can hear the album on the left channel or the right channel, or in this case both. This is not only the weirdest stereo/hi-fi adventure but one that is a challenging listening experience
