John Cage: City Circus, Program X

Wednesday, November 07, 2012 - 02:22 PM

WNYC

For this, the tenth edition of the John Cage: City Circus programs, hear a live performance in our studio of a work by Wendy Mae Chambers for twelve percussionists, written in memory of John Cage.  It's a voodoo tone poem called "Twelve Squared," where the number of movements was chosen by the chance operations of a tarot card reading.  There's also a choral work by Robert Moran, "Seven Sounds Unseen," introspective settings of passages from letters John Cage wrote to Moran, along with music made by the city of Tokyo in Japan.

PROGRAM #        1057, John Cage/City Circus, Program X  (First aired on 7/13/1994)
