John Cage Centenary
John Cage's 100 birthday will be in September 2012. I intend to celebrate with a marathon listening session, just letting his music and text-sound poetry and spoken word recordings play in my studio and house for several days. To get ready, here's some required listening:
John Cage works available at UbuWeb
John Cage & Morton Feldman: Radio Happenings
Two composers sit down in 1966-67 to talk about music, art, life, politics, and many other topics, providing us genuine insight into their unique creative processes, and exemplifying how making art is itself a joy.
And some required reading/listening:
Diary: How To Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse)
An essay about Cage's piece 4'33"
The official John Cage website and blog.
