This program contains the lecture given by John Cage on October 7, 1969, at the University of California Davis during the first meeting of his class on “Music in Dialogue”. In typical Cagian style the rather informal presentation covers such subjects as Buckminster Fuller, Zen Buddhism, philosophy, and the role of art and technology in modern society. The obvious delight of the students at having the opportunity to be taught by such a revolutionary composer is quite evident in their laughter and questions.
