Julian,

That's wonderful to hear. I'm glad your performance went well, and that you got to meet Laura, too; she's great fun.

Hi List,

I performed at the opening of the HCMF in the gallery in Huddersfield last week and would like to say that the exhibition is fantastic.  When we went to have a look at the space initially, the gallery director told us about how the works were chosen and their placement in the space was decided with chance operations, and that all the works are rotated every week using the same method.  A great way of nudging people to return every week as I believe only 75% of the works are on display at any one time.  I will be returning on a regular basis.

I had a wonderful experience performing Variations ii as a part of the Edges Ensemble.  Got to meet Laura Kuhn too, who was charming and seemed to approve of our performance.  Great gig.

All good wishes,

Julian

That's very kind of you to say so, Clemens.

For those who are interested, the exhibition is now in Huddersfield; I've yet to see it, but almost inevitably I'm sure it looks wonderful. The book is widely available through all the usual sources...

Dear All,

Whereas I haven't seen the 'Every Day is a Good Day' book yet. If it
is in anyway as thought-through as the concept of the touring
exhibition (I saw the exhibition at Kettlesyard in Cambridge, UK) and
similar to what Jeremy Millar said at a recent Cage "symposium" (more
a study day, but hey), then I can highly recommend it.

Will need to have a look at the book now, but the concept of the
exhibition is/was/will be very Cageian and sound.

Best wishes,
Clemens

Dear all,

Hope you're well. Kathan's book is, as Rob says, a wonderful insight into
working with Cage at Crown Point Press. 'Every Day is a Good Day' is the
catalogue to the touring exhibition of the same name which is currently
touring Britain. It contains around 80 full colour plates from all periods
of Cage's artistic production, the works having been specially photographed
for the book. It also includes interviews with Kathan, Ray, Laura Kuhn, and
Julie Lazar by myself, as well as a short introductory essay on the
exhibition by me on how I conceived and developed the project. Obviously,
I'd recommend it...

Hope that helps!

Best wishes,
Jeremy

THey're different books with different authors, at least the main title
listing doesn't mention Kathan:

Kathan Brown's book is more like a memoir of working with Cage at Crown
Point. This one also includes, though I haven't seen it yet, some
criticism
on the works themselves.

Maybe Ray Kass or some others on the list who are more informed on Cage's
visual art than I could comment? I would be very interested.

Best,

 I was browsing Cage art books at Amazon. I have Kathan Brown's "John
Cage
Visual Art: To Sober and Quiet the Mind". Is the book "Every Day is a
Good
Day: The Visual Art of John Cage" by the same author different from the
aforementioned, or more like an enriched reprint?

Come and hear an authentic performance with Joseph Kubera (who worked with Cage since the 1970s), under the direction of Petr Kotik (who worked with Cage since the early 1960s). Kotik’s Kontrabandt was commissioned by Karlheinz Stockhausen and the WDR Electronic Music Studion and realized there in 1967.

The program at ISSUE Project Room complements S.E.M. Ensemble's concert at the Paula Cooper Gallery on December 21. There, we will perform For 6 or 7 Players (1958) by Christian Wolff, in a transcription by Cage. The piece was believed to be lost for many years and was recently discovered it in Kotik’s archive. The program will include the most recent works by Wolff and Kotik, Why Patterns? by Morton Feldman and 6-voice Fugue by J. S. Bach.

Christian Wolff – For 6 or 7 Players

In 1964, during rehearsals with John Cage in Warsaw for the performance with the Merce Cunningham Dance Co. at the Warsaw Autumn festival, Cage brought a piece by Christian Wolff: For 6 or 7 Players (Music for Merce Cunningham). The piece was hand-copied by Cage, bearing his typical manuscript signature. The musicians were the Czech ensemble from Prague, Musica viva pragensis, which I founded few years back. Cage intended to perform the piece few days later, but it proved to be far too complicated to be ready in one or two rehearsals, so he gave up on the idea and left the material – the score and parts – with me. Going through my music archive last summer, I discovered the material and decided to perform the piece. Christian Wolff and I met to go through the score to resolve a few questions, and the performances are result of this effort.

—Petr Kotik

Christian Wolff composed For 6 or 7 Players in 1958, while serving in the United States Army. He mailed the manuscript to John Cage, not actually retaining a copy for himself. Cage regarded some of the aspects of the manuscript impractical and took it on himself to create a new version, painstakingly re-notating the piece into an exact score with parts. Despite his effort, the resulting score is far from simple to understand

For 6 or 7 Players has also been called “Music for Merce Cunningham,” and was originally written for the Cunningham dance “Rune.” The dance keeps coming back in [Cunningham’s] repertoire, but using other music of mine (For 6 or 7 Players has been too complicated to produce). The instrumentation is trumpet, trombone, piano, violin, viola, double bass and optional flute (hence 6 or 7). The duration is about 23 minutes, but that could have been tied to the duration of “Rune.” It can be shortened in a concert performance.

—Christian Wolff

Christian Wolff – Small Preludes

Originally composed for piano in 2009, Small Preludes (No. 1 – 9) have been adapted for an ensemble identical to For 6 or 7 Players. As usual, an adaptation is not just a straight instrumentation, but many different musical aspects enter into the equation, resulting in a new piece of music altogether. The piece uses many procedures typical of Wolff’s music, such as collaborative ensemble playing and ambiguity of clefs. As in For 6 or 7 Players, the flute’s participation is sparse and performed here by the conductor, who happens to a flute player as well. 

Morton Feldman – Why Patterns?

In the mid-70s, Feldman became the director of the Center of the Creative and Performing Arts and started to perform with the Creative Associates himself. He composed Why Patterns? in 1978 for the Center’s European tour. There, Feldman performed the piano part with the flutist Eberhard Blum and the percussionist Jan Williams. Feldman continued to compose for this ensemble (flute, percussion and piano), also composing Crippled Symmetry (1983) and For Philip Guston (1984). His student, the composer and pianist Nils Vigeland, performed the later works. Why Patterns? is written as an uncoordinated score, a technique typical for Feldman’s early music, especially from the 1950s. Musicians start together, but proceed independently. The scores of the two later trios are exactly notated and coordinated.

Petr Kotik – String Quartet No. 1 – Erinnerungen An Jan

String Quartet No. 1 – Erinnerungen an Jan was composed in autumn of 2007 and premiered in its first version by members of the S.E.M. Ensemble in December, 2007. Further changes and additional music was composed in January/February 2009 and in November, 2010, to be ready for a performance at Paula Cooper Gallery on December 21.

J. S. Bach – Ricercata A 6 Voci from A Musical Offering

J.S. Bach’s Ricercata a 6 Voci  from a Musical Offering will be performed as an example of an early avant-garde composition (Bach’s music only started to be appreciated by wider audiences 100 years after his death). The complexity of the 6-voice fugue from A Musical Offering rivals works by such contemporaries as Ligeti or Xenakis.

Fwd: Metamatic Update 18.12.2010

HO! (ho ho) ye Silenced,

This appeared in my email a few hours ago, and, with Metamatic's
permission, I am sending it along.  The only context I can provide is
that I have a great admiration for John Foxx--see e.g.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Foxx and/or
http://www.metamatic.com/ --and that I have not executed due diligence
against this particular project.

--Eric

Subject: Metamatic Update 18.12.2010
To:

Hello everyone,

Cage Against The Machine...

Earlier this month John Foxx participated in the re-recording of John
Cage's 4'33"...
Below is the press release...

*****

On Monday the 6th of December a band made up of influential artists
and musicians of the alternative scene from Pete Doherty to Penguin
Prison, Kooks to Coldcut and Crystal Fighters to Dan Le Sac, will be
gathered at the legendary Dean Street Studios in Soho to make history
by re-recording John Cage's celebrated piece, 4'33", which comprises
of four minutes and thirty three seconds of silence. The single (and
subsequent 'pocket call' remixes by Alex Metric, Herve, Adam F, Mr
Scruff and Hot Chip) were released on Wall of Sound Records on
December 13th, 2010.

"Cage Against The Machine" was started by London-based artist Dave
Hilliard in summer 2010 as a grassroots Facebook campaign to get John
Cage's famous 'silent' composition 4'33" to number one this Christmas.
The idea soon reached tens of thousands of people and attracted media
attention from all the national daily newspapers and radio stations
around the world including The Sun, Mail, Guardian, MSN, Channel 5's
The Wright Stuff to name a few. The campaign stepped up a gear in
October 2010 with the help of Eddy Temple Morris (XFM broadcaster and
ambassador for BTA), Joe Hutchinson (Ou Est Le Swimming Pool) and Mark
Jones (Wall of Sound) who joined forces to rally some of the most
influential artists, producers and directors around today to make
Hilliard's vision a reality.

Just about this time last year what started off as two 'likes' on a
Facebook page, and which quickly turned into a million, made Rage
Against The Machine's anthem "Killing In The Name" Christmas number
one, in now legendary fashion. Jon Morter, one of the chief architects
of the RATM campaign last year, recently came out in support of "Cage
Against The Machine", saying: "If ANY Xmas No.1 campaign is going to
work... it'll be the John Cage 4'33" one." Now the Facebook community
has reached over ninety thousand people committed to buying this
single and, with a nation of indie / rock / punk communities ready
once again to make a stand against bland, vacuous pop music; the
clarion call is "Cage Against The Machine" for Christmas Number One!

All the proceeds from sales will go to five charities. These
music-related charities were chosen by the "Cage Against The Machine"
Facebook community's organisers as something they feel John Cage would
have whole heartedly approved of. These are not fluffy or 'sexy'
charities but five charities who are pitifully underfunded and
desperate for funds to help research cures and improve awareness:
Specifically...

1. The British Tinnitus Association (BTA): When Cage's 4'33" begins,
anyone with Tinnitus will just hear their own dreadful ringing. This
condition can drive people suicidal and affects musicians more than
any other illness. BTA can't even afford to fund a single phone line
24 hours a day to help cope with suicidal calls from sufferers. We can
change that.

2. Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM): When Chazz Haddon, singer
of Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, tragically ended his own life at Pukkelpop
festival in August, a spotlight was put on the fact that the biggest
killer (aside from road accidents) of men under the age of thirty-five
in the UK is suicide. Men are four times more likely to kill
themselves than women. CALM is the only charity to exclusively focus
upon addressing young male suicide.

3. Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy: Nordoff Robbins brings music's
transforming power to children and adults in need, through the
delivery of music therapy services.

4. Youth Music: Youth Music is the leading UK charity using music to
transform the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.

5. Sound And Music: Promotes challenging new music and sound art.
"Your support enables us to conceive, experiment and pioneer
programmes to engage and inspire audiences of all ages."

The track, together with seven remixes, is currently available...

02. 4'33" (Cage Against The Machine Version) (Adam F's Club Mix) 4'41"
