Summary
John Cage finds environmental sounds and noises more interesting than those produced by the world's musical cultures. By challenging every established convention of classical music, Cage has become one of America's most influential modern composers and a leading theoretician. This video includes interviews with Cage and offers performances linking works from his long career, including Double Music, Music For Marcel Duchamp. Indeterminacy, Song Books, Branches, Inlets and Roaratorio: an Irish Circus on Finnegans Wake
