prepared train cd

Hi there, the italian label "curved light" is preparing a 3 discs set featuring the recording of the prepared-train happening. It was 1978 and John Cage made this weird experiment using a train.....keep an eye on
 
 
to see when the set will be released and enjoy this few (and small) pics of the event I found here:
 
 
Unfortunately it's all in italian....
 
 
Take care

International Contemporary Ensemble - Spiegeltent - South Street Seaport - New York Times

"The group [International Contemporary Ensemble] deserves the attention: the freshness and electricity of its performances and nondogmatic programming are persuasive more often than not. For the Darmstadt series the group made John Cage the anchor of its program. Its opener, Cage’s “Credo in US” (1942), began as a tightly focused account but emphasized the gathering chaos within the work, as the percussionists whacked their collections of tin cans and pots and the increasingly assertive sounds of a randomly tuned radio gave the score a cartoonish connection to the present."

Re: prepared train cd


Wow!

Thanks for the news.  I've been trying to find someone in Italy willing 
to track down the original cassette tape of the performance (in the 
Florence library), but this looks to be much more complete.

I just hope it won't sink into total obscurity as rapidly as the 
original book and recording.

Re: prepared train cd

Does this label have distribution? Or must it be ordered from their  
website?

celebration

Hope everyone did something today to honor John.
He would've been 94 today.

Re: celebration

Dear Rod,

Yes I've been thinking about him and his legacy all day. I 
worked. Very hard. And it reminded me of what Cage wrote 
in his "Future of Music" essay regarding his opinion about 
music and work. A great essay to read today, or at least 
to think about. There's so much to do now, just as there 
was then when he wrote it. And with the same urgency too. 
Perhaps even more so. Who knows?

I don't know what Cage would have been doing today if he 
were still alive but I would guess that to whatever degree 
he was capable he'd be working as hard as he could at 
whatever he was doing at the time.

So a perfect connection to Cage I think--that his birthday 
is the day following the US celebration of Labor Day!

I purchased groceries, then came home, turned off my computer and 
listened to my apt building for a while. Damm noisy place too. Take care 
Mr. Cage, RIP.

Re: prepared train cd

Well you can order from that site as you can see from the upper part of the 
page I gave the link of. It's the label catalogue and the Patrizio Fariselli 
and John Cage cds at the bottom of it are the upcoming releases.

Hope this helps

Stefano
