To accompany the performance of John Cage’s Variations VII, documentation of the original work from 1966 was presented at BALTIC. The documentary film John Cage Variations VII from the 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering series was screened looped in the cinema and an audio recording of the original performance was presented in the cube space. The film was produced by Billy Klüver & Julie Martin for Experiments in Art and Technology, and was directed by Barbro Schultz Lundestam.

Experiments in Art and Technology (EAT) is a non-profit service organisation that promotes the collaboration between artists and engineers to provide artists with access to new technology and to facilitate their participation in projects dealing with areas of social concern.
