Topos is collaborating with Julie Martin, Director of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) to research and publish selected material from the organization's extensive archive of sound recordings that include performances, interviews and other sound material produced by E.A.T. activities over the past 50 years. A double vinyl gatefold of John Cage's Variations VII from the legendary 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering in New York City in 1966 marked the beginning of Topos's collaboration with her. Their main focus is on sound generated in the 9 Evenings performance works by artists such as John Cage, Lucinda Childs, Alex Hay, Deborah Hay, Robert Rauschenberg, David Tudor and Robert Whitman.
