For this New Sounds, listen to but a few of the 100 compositions and sounds from a project called “100 x John, A Global Salute to John Cage,” featuring field recordings by composers and sound artists around the world. There is music made from the sounds that surround us, including the last town in Nepal before base camp on Mount Everest to stalactites in a cave, 700 meters underground in Serbia. Hear a composition by Arsenije Jovanic, comprised of the sounds of stalactites struck by wooden drum sticks, pieces of stone, and the composer’s hands, recorded in a cave, 700 m under the earth in Eastern Serbia.

In the third of these special City Circus programs, listen to highlights from a "Wall to Wall Cage & Friends" concert recorded live at Symphony Space back in 1982. There's a percussion piece by John Cage, another percussion work by Henry Cowell, as well as some unplanned readings by the composer himself.
