Silence : lectures and writings by John Cage( Book )

143 editions published between 1960 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 3,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silence, John Cage's first book and epic masterpiece, was published in October 1961. In these lectures, scores, and writings, Cage tries, as he says, to find a way of writing that comes from ideas, is not about them, but that produces them. Often these writings include mesostics and essays created by subjecting the work of other writers to chance procedures using the I Ching. Fifty years later comes a beautiful new edition with a foreword by eminent music critic Kyle Gann. A landmark book in American arts and culture, Silence has been translated into more than forty languages and has sold over half a million copies worldwide. -- Book jacket

Anarchy by John Cage( )

8 editions published between 1988 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""That government governs best which governs not at all; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have." This quote from Henry David Thoreau's Essay on Civil Disobedience is one of thirty quotations from which John Cage created Anarchy, a book-length lecture comprising twenty mesostic poems. Composed with the aid of a computer program to simulate the coin toss of the I Ching, Anarchy draws on the writings of many serious anarchists including Emma Goldman, Peter Kropotkin, and Mario Malatesta, not so much making arguments for anarchism as "brushing information against information," giving the very words new combinations that de-familiarize and re-energize them. Now widely available for the first time, Anarchy marks the culmination of Cage's work as a poet, composer and as a thinker about contemporary society."--Jacket

John Cage and David Tudor : correspondence on interpretation and performance by Martin Iddon( )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 1,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Cage is best known for his indeterminate music, which leaves a significant level of creative decision-making in the hands of the performer. But how much licence did Cage allow? Martin Iddon's book is the first volume to collect the complete extant correspondence between the composer and pianist David Tudor, one of Cage's most provocative and significant musical collaborators. The book presents their partnership from working together in New York in the early 1950s, through periods on tour in Europe, until the late stages of their work from the 1960s onwards, carried out almost exclusively within the frame of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Tackling the question of how much creative flexibility Tudor was granted, Iddon includes detailed examples of the ways in which Tudor realised Cage's work, especially focusing on Music of Changes to Variations II, to show how composer and pianist influenced one another's methods and styles [Publisher description]

Liberations; new essays on the humanities in revolution by Ihab Hassan( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of these essays were associated with the Wesleyan Center for the Humanities to search a central theme: the Humanities in Revolution. True liberations engage some deep energy, quiddity, or humor of life, and this is what the present authors attempt to engage. A post-humanism is in the making. The authors do not summon from the future a complete shape. They speak deeply of certain issues and concerns. More, they qualify, challenge, and instigate. (Author/CK)
