12.14.12 FONTANA RADIF and STEPS


This performance in celebration of the John Cage centenary pays homage to Cage’s liberating influence and, in particular, to Cage’s scores that are not pieces in the usual sense of the word, but rather scores that are open invitations to create anew, while providing the thoughtful means for doing that. Jessika Kenney presents FONTANA RADIF, a realization of the Persian Radif based on Cage's Fontana Mix (1958); Jarrad PowellBeth Graczyk, and Robert Campbell collaborate on a performance of Cage's STEPS: A Composition for a Painting, to be performed by individuals or groups (1989). Powell has received permission from Ray Kass and the Mountain Lake Workshop to present this unpublished and rarely performed work by Cage that results in the creation of an original painting. - Wayward Music Series at the Chapel Performance Space, Seattle. // details
