Item Description
An essential part of the music and art legacy that John Cage leaves us... are the writings gathered here, which span more than fifty years of Cagean thought and creativity... his response to the music of others, his ideas about art, film, and dane; and in An Autobiographical Statement - his reflections on his own life, career, and self-fulfillment...' (from the rear cover)

Also included are the texts of lectures, and of crucial importance to an appreciation of his music, Cage's notes on the performance of his compositions...

It is these moments of completeness that music can give, providing one can concentrate one's mind on it, that is, give one's self in return to the music, that are such deep pleasure, and that is why we love the art (John Cage, from the book).
