  • John Cage ASLAP



    Of course this organ business can be consuming, but this is fantastic!



    Have any members seen this installation?

      It's a concept. It's symbolic. It's a stunt.And it might even be interesting as something to think about but it certainly isn't interesting as something to listen to.Music has to be "doing something" in a framework which relates to a human being's sense of time. We are not god-like creatures for whom a century is but a moment.

        Perhaps, but take a good look at the Long Now Foundation website and it might change your thinking a bit: http://www.longnow.org/



        Indeed, we are not god-like creatures for whom a century is but a moment, but have we become consumed by the moment?

        Where does the organ world fit in the foundation's "Layers of Time" chart? Maybe the Cage project promotes the Long Now?

          I remember reading about this one in the NY Times a few years ago, it is an interesting thought, and very, very, very Cage, I mean after all this is the same man who "wrote" 4'33", and Water Walk (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSulycqZH-U). Really it seems fitting for a Cage piece. Some of Cage's work strikes me more as performance art than as music, that is just my feeling though.

            Haven't seen it. But what I like about Cage's work is that he gets you to think and rethink things we may take for granted. Rather then the governing thought of music should be _____, one could ponder that music can be _________
