‘Cage Post-Cage’ Posted on Vimeo
Ken Hollings on the legacy of John Cage from Sound and Music on Vimeo.
This seems like as good a way as any to start 2012: Sound and Music have finally posted the film made of my lecture ‘The Realization That We Possess Nothing: Some Thoughts on Cage – Post Cage’ on Vimeo. This talk was delivered almost a year ago at the Playhouse Theatre in Whitstable the morning after a man threw himself out of the window next to mine at the hotel in which I was staying – those who wish to refresh their memories of that grim and strange event so click here. Otherwise sit back and enjoy this rather fine video, which benefits from a two-camera set up in the theatre and the relatively long time it has spent in post-production - good to see that none of it was wasted over getting my name spelled correctly on the main title. My thanks to everyone involved.
