Avant-garde music of John Cage for everyone…
Only one word : THANKS !
From Open Culture :
You don’t know avant-garde music unless you know John Cage. And now we have another rich, easily accessible online resource that can help us get to know John Cage better.
The new site is called Making the Right Choices: A John Cage Celebration, and it has its origins in the celebration of Cage’s 100th birthday put on by conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony in February 2013.
This Cage-devoted, Knight Foundation-funded site, in the words of Hyperallergic‘s Allison Meier, “presents a comprehensive overview of his career, from a watering can poured on national television to a rhythmic solo piano performance inspired by lost love,” material from Cage’s life and career as well as material inspired by it, and of course “video and audio from the 2013 performances in Miami Beach, including some familiar and some obscure pieces from [Cage’s] influential and experimental career of both music and staged silence.”
