Published by Corraini Edizioni.
Edited by Giorgio Maffei, Fabio Carboni.

The colossal influence of John Cage (1912–1992) was disseminated as much through his publications as through performances and recorded music, and countless musicians, artists, writers and thinkers have testified to the impact of reading his 1961 book Silence. Divided into four sections--books, scores, records and miscellaneous documents such as posters--Sound Pages: John Cage’s Publications visually documents the composer’s published output, from limited editions and rarities to classics such as A Year from Monday and his recorded output on CD and vinyl. Throughout this volume, Cage’s insistence on graphic beauty and care in book-making--that an equal attention be paid to all aspects of the work, from typography to score notation--emerges as a key component of his sensibility. This volume is an essential publication for scholars and Cage’s many fans.

A Conversation

Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg.

In 1984, John Cage (born 1912) gave a concert at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin and art critic and curator Thomas Wulffen (born 1931) seized the opportunity to talk with Cage about his work. This previously unpublished interview shows the composer in a relaxed and generous mood.

Composition in RetrospectComposition in Retrospect

Published by Exact Change.
By John Cage.

Written in his characteristic “mesostics” (lines of prose poetry linked by a central vertical acrostic), Composition in Retrospect is a statement of methodology in which composer John Cage examines the central issues of his work: indeterminacy, imitation, variable structure and contingency. Finished only shortly before his death in 1992, Composition in Retrospect completes the documentation of Cage’s thought that began with his classic book Silence (1961), but it is an introduction and invitation to his work as much as a summary or conclusion. Also included in this volume (at Cage’s request) is “Themes and Variations,” a piece written in 1982 about friends and heroes such as Jasper Johns, Buckminster Fuller, Marcel Duchamp and Erik Satie. Together these pieces form a book that is both a testament to the artists Cage admired and a clear statement of his own ars poetica.

John Cage: Every Day is a Good Day: The Visual Art of John CageJohn Cage: Every Day is a Good Day: The Visual Art of John Cage

Published by Hayward Publishing.
Introduction by Roger Malbert. Text by Jeremy Millar, Lauren A. Wright, Helen Luckett. Interviews by Kathan Brown, Ray Kass, Laura Kuhn, Julie Lazar, Irving Sandler.

One of the twentieth century's most influential and iconoclastic protagonists, John Cage (1912-1992) may be described not so much as a composer, artist and author, as a thinker who applied his ideas equivalently to sound, visual art and writing. As with his music, the use of chance operations--in particular via the Chinese Book of Changes, or I Ching--was central to Cage's approach to visual art, determining technique, the placement of forms and even tonal values. Every Day is a Good Day provides the first broad assessment of Cage's art, and is fully illustrated with plates of his drawings, watercolors and prints, including series such as Where R=Ryoanji (1983-92). Cage's working methods and philosophies are brought to light in new interviews with key collaborators: printmaker and writer Kathan Brown, founder of Crown Point Press; Laura Kuhn, Director of the John Cage Trust; artist Ray Kass; and Julie Lazar, curator of Cage's composition for a museum, Rolywholyover: A Circus. Extracts from a 1966 interview between John Cage and critic Irving Sandler are also reproduced. At the heart of the book is a "Companion to John Cage," a selection of quotes by Cage and notes on key themes and influences, all of which make it essential reading on this important figure of the twentieth-century avant garde.

John Cage 4'33John Cage 4'33

Published by C.F. Peters.

John Cage was born on September 5, 1912 in Los Angeles, California and died in New York City on August 12, 1992. He studied liberal arts at Pomona College. Among his composition teachers were Henry Cowell and Arnold Schoenberg. Cage was elected to the American National Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and received innumerable awards and honors both in the United States and in Europe.

He was commissioned by a great many of the most important performing organizations throughout the world, and maintained a very active schedule. It would be extremely difficult to calculate, let alone critically evaluate, the stimulating effect and ramifications that Cage's work has had on 20th century music and art, for it is clear that the musical developments of our time cannot be understood without taking into account his music and ideas. His invention of the prepared piano and his work with percussion instruments led him to imagine and explore many unique and fascinating ways of structuring the temporal dimension of music.

He is universally recognized as the initiator and leading figure in the field of indeterminate composition by means of chance operations. Arnold Schoenberg said of Cage that he was an "inventor - of genius".
