Open Cage: NEW YORK – Celebrating John Cage at 100

Eyebeam Art + Technology Center

7:30pm

 

Japanese-born visual artist Morgan O’Hara, who personally knew John Cage, leads members of the New York art, poetry and music communities, Cage enthusiasts, musicians of the Chelsea Music Festival, and interested audience members in this 100 minute performative work will involve recorded music and music performed live, texts from Cage's writings, stories written by Cage collected in his books, objects and instruments for which he composed music, a complete chronology of his works read aloud by a musicologist, moving images of Cage himself talking about his work and life, texts describing his methodology with chance operations, and his studies of Zen Buddhism. Interested members of the audience will be invited to participate in the piece.  Simultaneous activities will take place in and around an installation of cages with their doors open in an omni-genre tribute to John Cage and his 100 years of influence on the entire world of music and art.

 

A reception to follow by Chef Lance Nitahara plays on John Cage’s excursions into mycology.

“When I wasn’t involved with music, I was in the woods looking for mushrooms.”(Cage in Darmstadt)
