X: Writings '79-'82 by John Cage

Book Description

One of a series of experimental texts in which Cage tries to find a way of writing which comes from ideas, is not about them, but which produces them, he attempts in X to create looser structures in both life and art, to free my writing from my intentions.

Author Biography - John Cage

Born in Los Angeles in 1912, JOHN CAGE received an award, at the age of 37, from the American Academy and Institute of the Arts and Letters for having extended the boundaries of music. At 70, he was named Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters and decorated by the French Minister of Culture. In 1982, celebrations of Cage s seventieth birthday took place around the world, including a 13-hour Wall-to-Wall John Cage and Friends marathon at Symphony Space in New York City, where he lives. He lectures frequently in America and abroad, continues to hunt wild mushrooms, and has a collection of more than 200 houseplants. He is Musical Advisor of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company."
