Profound wisdom / insight of the day

“For years I said if I could only find a comfortable chair I would rival Mozart.”

Morton Feldman

Profound wisdom / insight of the day

“A composer who hears sound will try to find a notation for sounds. One who has ideas will find one that expresses his ideas, leaving their interpretation free, in confidence that his ideas have been accurately and concisely notated.”

Cornelius Cardew

John Cage

In homage to one of my biggest inspirations, John Cage on what would have been his 106th birthday (yesterday) here is one of my pieces from 2016 replicating his indeterminate processes from his Ryoanji series of prints. On art, Cage said; “Art is a way of life. It is for all the world like taking a bus, picking flowers, making love, sweeping the floor, getting bitten by a monkey, reading a book, etc…Art is not separate from life (nor is dish-washing when it is done in this spirit)”.
