The original NSTNT HPSCHD PCKT MX, for 14 differently-tuned harpsichords, was composed in 2002 on the 10th anniversary of Cage’s death. NSTNT HPSCHD PCKT RMX2 is a new mix made in 2010. It never has more than seven of the harpsichords playing at any one time, and each may be mixed in at any of 3 different volume levels. Entrances, exits, loudness and tunings were all, of course, determined by chance operations.
