John Cage

Eternal Cage

Today is John Cage’s birthday, as it will be for the next several billion years. His ideas and accomplishments will be eternally important and relevant.

Everyone and their mother (especially this awful book) namechecks 4’33”, but his magnum opus—at least in my current view—is Song Books. Below are some moments from the fantastic performance Alarm Will Sound put on in 2012, and head down to Wild Project tonight for a version (each one is different) from Avant Media.
