what stays with me: john cage

John Cage entered into silence twenty years ago today. Allan Kozinn of The New York Times has a fine appreciation here. My own take on 4'33" is here.

The picture above is from this excellent Cage resource.


from the desk . . .

The works list (linked above) is a little heavier today. I've added two new pieces: Intertwining Geometries, the premiere of which went off brilliantly, with Carla Rees and Sarah Watts making as good a case for a piece as a composer could want, and Anaphoric Geometries, a very short fanfare for 12-part brass choir.

I hope to be posting the recording of IG soon.
