John Cage, 433
Performed by Peter Dougan and Andrew Farnsworth
Sunday, August 29 | 6:00pm

On August 29, 1952, in a concert produced by WAAM to support its “Artist’s Fund”, the pianist David Tudor performed the world premier of John Cage’s 433”, a piece in 3 movements during which the musician or musicians do NOT play. The piece took the world by storm and is considered to be a masterpiece of minimalist art, Buddhist expression and ego-less creation. WAAM has been commemorating the world premier of this piece, on August 29, for the last 10 years, featuring locally and internationally renowned musicians. This year, we are pleased to have local legends Peter Dougan and Andrew Farnsworth performing the Cage piece and, later in the program, a few pieces from their 25 years of creative collaboration. Cage scholar and biographer Kay Larson will once again speak on Cage, 433”, Buddhism and creative expression.

Tickets are free, but limited. Details to follow.
