1 Rezension
John Cage was perhaps the 20th century's most radical classical composer. From his famous "silent" piece (4'33") to his proclamation that "all sound is music," Cage stretched the aesthetic boundaries of what could be performed in the modern concert hall. But, more than that, Cage was a provocative cultural figure, who played a key role in inspiring scores of other artists -- and social philosophers -- in the second half of the 20th century. Through his life and work, he created revolutions in thinking about art, and its relationship to the world around us. Conversing with Cage is the ideal introduction to this world, offering in the artist's own words his ideas about life and art. Book jacket.

Review: Conversing With Cage

Nutzerbericht  - Anselm - Goodreads

I love Cage's diction, its got a biscuits and gravy dripping from the ceiling pondering eternity and its rearrangement-vibe, with manners. I listened to some of his music at one point while standing on a sidewalk reading something else, and forgot I was listening to anything. Vollständige Rezension lesen
