100 x John (dedicated to John Cage)

Thursday, January 03, 2013

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.
