Silence - Lectures and Writings by John Cage
Publisher: Mariyon Boyars
A collection of letters and writings by John Cage. For John Cage, whatever else a lecture may be, it is fundamentally an arrangement of sounds in time and space, requiring the same approach as the composition of a piece of music. The book also contains a wealth of handy information on collecting mushrooms, fishing through the ice, etc., and many anecdotes and Zen-type stories which all illustrate Cage's exuberant artistic preoccupations.
