"All Things Cage" is a weekly program featuring conversations between Laura Kuhn, Director of the John Cage Trust, and Cage experts and enthusiasts from around the world. If youd like to propose a guest or a topic for a future program, write directly to Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org.Laura Kuhn presents the first recording of John Cages Europera 5, preceded by her reading Recollections of the Premiere Performance by Yvar Mikhashoff. This recording of Europera 5 was produced by Brian Brandt and released on the Mode Records label as Mode 36 in 1995, with performers Yvar Mikhashoff, Martha Herr, Gary Burgess, Jan Williams, and Don Metz. Europera 5 is the last and most diminutive of Cages operas " preceded by Europeras 1 & 2 (1984-1987) and Europeras 3 & 4 (1991) " and was instigated by pianist Yvar Mikashoffs desire for a small, more practical and portable, and more easily performed work in the series, which had its premiere in Buffalo at the North American New Musical Festival on April 12, 1991.
Welcome to "The Radio Art Hour," a show where art is not just on the radio, but is the radio. "The Radio Art Hour" draws from the Wave Farm Broadcast Radio Art Archive, an online resource that aims to identify, coalesce, and celebrate historical and contemporary international radio artworks made by artists around the world, created specifically for terrestrial AM/FM broadcast, whether it be via commercial, public, community, or independent transmission. Come on a journey with us as radio artists explore broadcast radio space through poetic resuscitations and playful celebrations/subversions of the complex relationship between senders and receivers in this hour of radio about radio as an art form. "The Radio Art Hour" features introductions from Philip Grant and Tom Roe, and from Wave Farm Radio Art Fellows Karen Werner, Andy Stuhl, Jess Speer, and Jos Alejandro Rivera. The Conet Project's recordings of numbers radio stations serve as interstitial sounds. Go to wavefarm.org for more information about "The Radio Art Hour" and Wave Farm's Radio Art Archive.

By now we have all seen images of plastic garbage patches floating in the ocean, beaches and riverbanks swamped with plastic trash, entangled sea-creatures suffocating - but data on the presence of plastics in soils and air are new - Discarded plastics break down into microplastics less that 5 mm in length - and they degrade further into nano-plastics that can only be seen under a microscope. There are now microplastics found in human lungs and blood and placentas; and the latest scientific studies show that babies are drinking microplastics in their mothers’ milk. Here is a report from the first meeting to control plastic held in Uruguay in December 2022. 160 of the 192 UN member states attended. Andres del Castillo attended the first round of negotiations for a new Global Treaty on Plastics, formally kicked off in early December 2022 in Uruguay. He is a senior attorney at the Center for International Environmental Law. Mark Leon Goldberg is the producer of Global Dispatches, a podcast for foreign policy and Global development. He is the editor of the United Nations and global affairs blog UN Dispatch and host of the Global Dispatch Podcast.
Environmental, social and corporate governance, referred to as ESG, is a set of factors that conscientious capitalists use to identify worthy investments. For most of the movement’s relatively brief existence, ESG has fallen under the purview of sustainability experts. Recently, however, Wall Street appears to have embraced ESG with both arms – according to some estimates, last year over $41 trillion in global ESG assets were traded. This turn has liberals and environmentalists concerned that the definition of what qualifies as an ESG-friendly company may be watered-down. At the same time, prominent Republicans are decrying the use of ESG factors, claiming that it’s part of the “woke mob’s war on fossil fuels.” This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to Rebecca Leber, a senior climate reporter at Vox. She unpacks the complex conservative position on the ESG movement and explains why she finds it so puzzling and troubling.
Community solar is commonly defined as a system where people in one place can get bill credits from a solar project located somewhere else, but most of the community solar in the US benefits corporations more than communities. Activists from a small town in OR and the mid sized city of Olympia,WA are propagating alternative models of community solar that keep the benefits local. A group of young people in Olympia WA figured out how to work around the state's lack of virtual net metering and install community funded solar on non-profit and community buildings. A retired scientist in Talent, OR organized the first participant owned community solar project in his state. Both groups are now working statewide on projects with partners including tribes, high schools, fire departments, county governments, and irrigation districts. Mason Rolph, Dan Orzech, and Ray Sanchez Pescador talk about how they got started, overcoming obstacles, and how we don't have to wait for utilities, politicians, or corporations to expand solar access in our communities.
Mueze talks of the community influences - neighbors, teachers librarians, and park workers - that he encountered while growing up as an immigrant child in Chicago's 50th Ward. He credits these influences with his development as a human being and achievements in life, along with his commitment to work toward their availability to everyone. Many South Asian languages are spoken in the Ward yet the 12 year incumbent alderman, Debra Silverstein, publishes city information in none, isolating many of the wards citizens from civic participation and city resources. Mueze also speaks about the mutual aid program the he and like minded teachers, helped their students initiate at Clemente High School during the height of the pandemic. He also speaks about the new public safety ordinance (Empowering Communities for Public Safety) that will elect district council members in the coming election cycle.
