http://www.artnet.com/magazine/features/siegel/siegal7-30-04.asp snip: Castelli gave President John F. Kennedy a Jasper Johns flag one Independence Day in the 1960s. "I thought it was the tackiest thing I’d ever seen," said Johns at the time. "Then John Cage said to me, ‘You must just think of it as a pun on your work.’" Cage was a close confidant and mentor to Johns. "John Cage was both a wonderful intellect and a generous teacher, and also a kind of preacher -- he always wanted to tell you what was good."

some links regarding Stefan Wolpe...
"To me Wolpe's music is strikingly original, with a kind of fiery inner logic that makes for fascinated listening. Some pounding natural force brings it forth and gives it reality." Aaron Copland
"Wolpe was the kind of man who used all eighty-eight notes of his personality." Morton Feldman
... Stefan Wolpe special ... The Music of Stefan Wolpe (RealOnePlayer!) | Monday 30 September | [British Summer Time] Starr Auditorium, Tate Modern | 2002 is the centenary of the birth of influential Berlin-born composer, Stefan Wolpe (1902-72). To celebrate, Tate Modern hosted a concert and discussion of his work. Stefan Wolpe was a pioneer of modernism in the New York scene of the 1940s and 50s. He maintained a Bauhaus-influenced belief in the interchange between the arts, and was a close friend of such painters as de Kooning, Kline, Rothko and Tworkov. The evening's performers were pianist Nicolas Hodges and violinist Mieko Kanno. Leading Wolpe scholar Austin Clarkson and concert pianist Katherina Wolpe, the composer's daughter, took part in the discussion | Presented by Music Projects/London Trust with support from the Stefan Wolpe Society Inc.

this is regarding david tudor....
Sea Tails (1983) is a six-screen, three-channel video installation that combines electronic music by David Tudor with footage taken by Molly Davies of Jackie Matisse's kites moving through the ocean. This exhibition draws on the special collections of the Research Library at the Getty Research Institute to recreate the original installation of Sea Tails and reveal the working process of its creators.
