Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 71 min
Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA

This is an interview with John Cage & David Tudor, conducted in French and English. This particular interview was purportedly recorded on May 29, 1972, a time at which both John Cage and David Tudor were on a European tour featuring performances in London, Bremen, Paris and other European cities. Cage talks about the influence that Henry David Thoreau, Marcel Duchamp, and others have had on his own artistic output. Works discussed include Cage’s “Mureau” and David Tudor’s “Rainforest,” which were performed simultaneously during their 1972 European concerts. Another pairing of the two composer’s works, Cage’s “62 Mesostics Re Merce Cunningham,” and Tudor’s “Untitled” is also discussed. Towards the end of the program David Tudor talks about his decision to play the piano less, and instead focus on his own electronic music.
