JOHN CAGE

Just in case we're taking ourselves all too seriously --- here is a little levity, a BBC orchestral performance of Cage's 4'33" --- in three movements, with play-by-play commentary! Thanks Matthew.

Over the years, when I've felt stuck or bogged down in the studio, I have sometimes found that reading a few passages from Cage's lectures helps to dissolve whatever barrier I've created and open up the view to include all possibilities.
