A multidisciplinary performance in celebration of John Cage
Seattle performers from different disciplines celebrate John Cage’s 100th birthday with stagings of rare works, Dec. 14, 2012.
And the John Cage 100th birthday celebrations keep on coming!
A variety of Seattle performing artists — Jarrad Powell, Roger Nelson, Paul Taub, Stuart Dempster and all three members of dance/sound troupe Salt Horse — stage a rare performance of an unpublished Cage score from 1989, “Steps: A Composition for a Painting,” in combination with Cage’s “Atlas Eclipticalis” and “Winter Music.” Also on the program: vocalist Jessika Kenney transforms Cage’s 1958 tape piece, “Fontana Mix,” into a Persian-influenced “Fontana Radif.”
