Last night’s John Cage Marathon, night three of Cornish’s Drums Along the Pacific festival, was an ear opener. The marathon surveyed pieces from through out the composer’s life. Music for percussion, prepared piano, and unprepared piano dominated the programs. Cage believed all sound, no matter how alien, how repulsive, can be music.
I will be writing about night two and three of the festival. But, last night, The Gathering Note conducted its first live blogging event. Perched in the balcony of the recital hall, I followed the festival from start to finish. I hope we will have more live blogging events in the future.
