4.50 16

Classic electronic and percussive compositions by John Cage – performed here with sounds from a wide range of sources – including drums, cymbals, radios, turntables, and a number of other recordings! The performance is the first to actually bring together all of the different strands of Cage's Imaginary Landscape compositions – written between 1939 and 1952, and still light years ahead of their time – beautifully recorded here, at a level that's far greater than might have been the case in the 50s! Direction is by Jan Williams, and the performance features the Maelstrom Percussion Ensemble, plus assorted artists working turntables, radios, and other source recordings!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
