11. radiOM.org - Cabrillo Music Festival Lecture by John Cage, Aug. 1977 [7.270% Popularity: 0.00000]
Cabrillo Music Festival: Lecture by John Cage, Aug. 1977 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 112 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA 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.

13. radiOM.org - John Cage’s “Winter Music” and “Variations I” [7.265% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage’s “Winter Music” and “Variations I” Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 55 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA From a live broadcast on KPFA, recorded on May 20, 1968, Robert Moran and Howard Hersh perform two works by John Cage, “Winter Music” and “Variations I”. Both are aleatoric works featuring a single stark piano mixed with occasional taped sounds, but mostly filled with long periods of silence. The prerecorded bits seem to include a lot of wind and water sounds and taken together certainly seem to evoke the pristine barrenness of a winter’s day, although there is nothing in Cage’s or the performers comments that would indicate that this was it’s purpose. However, freed from the need for meaning this performance will stand in its own right, as a thing of simply being. Musical Selections: Winter Music (1957) / John Cage -- Variations I (1958) / John Cage Performers: Robert Moran, piano Howard Hersh, tape realizations Genres: 20th Century Classical ; New Music Subject: 20th centur...
14. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music John Cage, 1987 [7.263% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: John Cage, 1987 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 128 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian interviews John Cage on January 8, 1987, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. The program begins with a discussion of two of Cage’s pieces of aleatoric music, “Music For” which is scored for any number of instruments, and “Thirty Pieces for Five Orchestras”. Also discussed in detail is “EurOperas 1 & 2”, which was intended to be an opera like no other, and in that regard it has no real libretto or plot. However the majority of this program is dedicated to questions from the audience. In his answers Cage continues to confound expectations with his comments about why he composes using chance operations (to free his music from his likes and dislikes), the role of silence in music (to listen to the sounds everyone ignores), and the role of music (to quiet the mind). Cage also wanders ...
