Cabrillo Music Festival:
Lecture by John Cage, Aug. 1977

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 112 min

The lecture begins with reading of “Mureau”, which is based on a text by Henry David Thoreau. The program concludes with a lengthy question and answer session that followed Cage’s appearance at the Cabrillo Music Festival in August 1977. It is often in addressing the public’s questions that Cage’s brilliance is most memorable, and this example is no exception. Of particular interest is his description of how he uses chance operations in his creative processes.
