1. radiOM.org - John Cage Obituary [7.338% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage Obituary Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 7 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: C Amirkhanian John Cage's obituary on KFPA Radio by Charles Amirkhanian, August 12, 1992. The sudden death of John Cage as he approached his 80th birthday came as a shock to many. The day the message came to KPFA from Laura Kuhn, Cage's assistant, the KPFA News Department held time for this report that was completed by Amirkhanian minutes before it aired. Later the circumstances were explained by Ms. Kuhn who had left the composer's apartment in NYC and reminded Mr. Cage that he needed to complete his list of works for a publication deadline. Cage expressed his displeasure at the thought of having to do this. When Ms. Kuhn returned she found the composer had suffered a major stroke. She summoned an ambulance to take him to the nearest hospital. Returning to Cage's apartment, she went to his work table and, to her astonishment, found that Cage had completed the list.

3. radiOM.org - Cheap Imitation by John Cage [7.297% Popularity: 0.00000]
Cheap Imitation by John Cage Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded on May 20, 1971 at the first of two concerts at the M.H. De Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco, this is the first half of John Cage’s 1969 composition for solo piano, “Cheap Imitation.” This work was later revised for orchestra in 1972, and in 1977 an arrangement for violin was choreographed by Merce Cunningham, under the name of “Second Hand.” The tape containing the second half of this performance was unfortunately, but perhaps somewhat appropriately, lost in a fire that broke out on the top of KPFA’s Steinway Piano. Additional works presented at this concert can be found on the radiom.org program “John Cage at the DeYoung Museum May 20, 1971” Musical Selections: Cheap Imitation, for piano [1st half] (1969) (21:58) / John Cage Genre: New Music Subject: New music ; Piano music ; Aleatory music People: Cage, John Recording Date: 5/20/1971 Listen...

6. radiOM.org - John Cage Considered: An Introduction [7.284% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage Considered: An Introduction Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 47 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) A tentative introduction and preliminary remarks about the music, aesthetics, and phenomenon of John Cage. Recorded in 1965 this program contains the comments of Charles Shere on the life and music of the most famous of American avant-garde composers. The program, (which relies on a 1964 New Yorker article about Cage, a catalogue of his works published by Peters Edition, and Cage’s own book of essays “Silence”, for its background information), starts with a description of Cage’s early education and career as a lecturer on modern art. Shere then goes on to play excerpts from a number of Cage’s early compositions in order to illustrate Cage’s evolution from a student of Schoenberg to a composer experimenting with new sounds and techniques. By 1951 Cage had begun to become interested in Zen Buddhism and the role of chance ope...
7. radiOM.org - John Cage’s Fontana Mix [7.282% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage’s Fontana Mix Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 20 min Event Type: Music Additional Media Files (click to view) This is a tape realization of John Cage’s 1958 composition “Fontana Mix”. More of an indeterminate plan for a piece than a piece itself, “Fontana Mix” has a graphic score consisting of 10 sheets of paper with curved lines and 12 transparencies, 10 of which contain a varied number of randomly distributed dots, 1 with a straight line, and the last with a grid pattern. According to Cage’s instructions these sheets could be superimposed upon each other and then interpreted so as to indicate differences in such elements as tone, duration, or volume of a variety of different sound events. Thus it was a type of manual for creating a piece of music that could be realized using traditional instruments, electronic sounds, random samples, or virtually any other type of sound making device. For this particular realization two separate mixes, consisting of electronic or electronically manipul...
8. radiOM.org - Overpopulation and Art: A reading by John Cage [7.274% Popularity: 0.00000]
Overpopulation and Art: A reading by John Cage Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 34 mins Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA On January 28, 1992, John Cage delivered a series of lectures at Stanford University in Palo Alto California, just a few months before his death. Representing his last major writing, “Overpopulation and Art” is a mesostic poem that covers a wide variety of Cage’s concerns, from the implications of technology on the environment, to the role of art in society. Although often remembered as a radical composer of aleatoric music, John Cage was also an extremely intelligent man, who remained curious about most aspects of life, be it scientific, artistic, political, or philosophical. Unrelentingly optimistic about humanity’s potential, and yet painfully aware of its faults, Cage’s concluding words, in which he describes the arc of one’s achievements as going from “failure to failure, until the final victory,” serves as a fitting epitaph for this incredible m...
