Giancarlo Simonacci's New Recording

Hi all:
Following up on the previous post of the new prepared piano recording on
Brilliant Classics of Cage's prepared piano music (perf. By Giancarlo
Simonacci) ...

I picked this recording up last week while I was in Rome and despite its
incredible budgeted price (about $15 US for a 3 disc set) must say that I am
impressed with the quality of this recording in every aspect.  The
performances are assured and ambient quality of the recording places the
listener in close proximity to the instrument.  It is always a pleasure to
hear how different pianos sound under the same preparations.  Inside the set
are good liner notes written by Emanuel Overbeeke.

I was happy to also pick up the recording of Music for Marcel Duchamp, et.
al. with the 'new digital remastering' on the Cramps Records label.

Good thing I threw a few Euros in the Trevi fountain.

cage remixes?

Hi,

I was browsing the web site for the sound artist Thomas Köner (http:// 
www.koener.de), and included in his discography, without any other  
information is a 'John Cage Remix for Mode Records'.  I don't see  
anything on the Mode web site about this, so I wondered if anyone  
here could provide more details.

Thanks.

Re: cage remixes?

This is a project curated by saxophonist/composer Ulrich Krieger in 
collaboration with Mode and C.F. Peters. Many artists and composers from 
various esthetics were invited to contribute "remixes" of Cage's work, 
primarily based on recordings from Mode's Cage Edition. It should be 
released in late 2007 or 2008 (dependent on how quickly we can get 
everyone's recordings!).

Re: silence Digest, Vol 67, Issue 3

You will certainly want to investigate any archival material from Wesleyan  
University Press. Cage's editor at Wesleyan, Bill Bueno, was certainly  
very important to both the form that the book took as a whole and a large  
number of details in the texts themselves.

Re: Silence Editions

Greetings! The only lead I can provide you is a German translation by 
Ernst Jandl, published by Suhrkamp Verlag (Frankfurt) in 1995. It includes 
translation of the Lecture on Nothing, Lecture on Something, and 45' for a 
Speaker -- not the whole book. I've read aloud parts of the "Vortrag uber
Nichts" and it compares very beautifully with the "Amerikanischen."

The title of the translation is simply "Silence" (in English).

Best wishes,

Re: Silence Editions

Hi there,

I worked for four years on the Cage archives in the Special Collections and Archives dept. at Wesleyan's Olin Library--there's a ton of material there, including the original manuscripts and proofs of the Silence. I'd definitely say it's worth the trip to Connecticut, if you can afford it!  http://www.wesleyan.edu/libr/schome/.

For other Silence listers, too, you should know that this is a truly weird and astonishing collection, containing an crazy assortment of fan mail, news clippings, gallery invitations, tributes, and correspondence that Cage donated to Wesleyan upon his death.  And, it's now more or less researcher friendly.  The online Finding Aid is located here: http://www.wesleyan.edu/libr/schome/FAs/ca1000-72.html

Enjoy!

unrecorded Cage?

Are there any (finished) Cage pieces left to be recorded? I have been
looking at André Chaudron's wonderful lists. I spot these pieces not
listed in the discography:

Greek Ode
First Chapter of Ecclesiastes
Opening Dance for Sue [Laub]
Dance to the West
Encounter (3 of 4 movements finished)
Orestes
Black Mountain Piece (could this be recorded? or should we consider it
to be a 1-time event of 1952?)
Unfinished Work for Voice
Unfinished Work for Magnetic Tape (could these two be finished?)
Speech (there is a YouTube clip of rehearsals of this piece)
Adaptation of 'Ixion' (Feldman piece)
Duet for Cymbal (version of Cartridge Music mentioned in score)
WBAI
Variations V
Variations VI
Variations VII
Newport Mix
0'00" No. 2 (Solo for Voice No. 23 - I don't know if this has been
recorded as part of Song Books)
Sound Anonymously Received
33 1/3 / Cassette / Address
Dialogue
Untitled (work for Joao Miró) (score may not be available)
Les chants de Maldoror pulvérises par l'assistance même
Music for "Westbeth" (recored on video, score may not be available)
Quartets I-VIII (there are versions for 24, 41, 93 players, only 1 or 2
have been recorded, 24 players, and I don't know how big the ensemble
is on the Hat Hut recording)
Sounday
Concerto Grosso
Paragraphs of Fresh Air
Improvisation III
Fifteen domestic minutes
A House Full of Music
Improvisation IV
Instances of Silence
HMCIEX (recorded but not yet released)
A Collection of Rocks
Selkus2
Improvisation A+B
Rocks
Wishing Well
Scottish Circus
Mozart Mix
Eighty
Muoyce II

Well, I guess I answered my own question. I have left out the pieces
composed in collaboration (presumably for Merce Cunningham dance
performances).
