Event Description

EAR TO THE EARTH IN COLLABORATION WITH MA.P.S AT WHITE BOX PRESENT 100X JOHN: A GLOBAL SALUTE TO JOHN CAGE IN SOUND AND IMAGE
DECEMBER 20 – 23, 2012

With Tom Beyer, Walter Bianchi, Warren Burt, Alessandro Cipriani, Alvin Curran, Philip Dadson, R. Luke DuBois, Paul Geluso, Bernie Krause, Joseph Kubera, David Monacchi, Garth Paine, Maggi Payne, David Rothenberg, and many others

The environmental sound organization Ear to the Earth and MA.P.S (Media Arts, Performance, and Sound) Program at White Box join forces to present 100 x John, a weekend-long multimedia extravaganza celebrating the end of the 100th anniversary of John Cage’s birth with 100 compositions and sound art pieces by artists from around the world. In a 1937 talk, “The Future of Music: Credo”, Cage said, “I believe that the use of noise to make music will continue and increase until we reach a music produced through the aid of electrical instruments which will make available for musical purposes any and all sounds that can be heard.” As a salute to Cage’s leadership in opening up music to all sounds, 100 x John will feature a vast array of works, all based on field recording, natural and urban, some using traditional instruments and voice. Most of the pieces have never been presented in New York or in a concert setting before.
