Homages to John Cage


John Cage was born on 5 September 1912. These scores were written in 2012, the centenary of his birth.
 
John Cage inspired many of the early Fluxus artists, particularly those who studied with him at the New School for Social Research in New York in the late 1950s. These artists included George Brecht, Dick Higgins and Jackson Mac Low, who all became central to the development of new performative art forms and Fluxus in the 1960s.(Owen Smith)

It is not generally known that John Cage was also a keen mycologist. The intention of these scores is to celebrate his interest in mushrooms.
