"What mushroom? What leaf?" Tonight we explore the theme of John Cage's compositions as an autonomous outgrowth - mesostics (a form of verse that spreads out horizontally from a vertical text), the use of color and squiggly lines in his Aria for Cathy Berberian, the Constructions and other percussive pieces (including collaborations with Lou Harrison), Cage's interpretations of Richard Lippold's sculptures and James Joyce's Finnegan's Wake, etc.
