The 2012 '13 Rochester Broadway Theatre League’s season is about to begin
I couldn't resist posting just a few more John Cage links before this space gets back to being all-Copland all the time.
Music, what does it communicate?
Is what’s clear to me clear to you?
Is music just sounds?
Then what does it communicate?
Is a truck passing by music?
If I can see it, do I have to hear it too?
If I don’t hear it, does it still communicate?
If while I see it I can’t hear it, but hear something else, say an egg-beater, because I’m inside looking out, does the truck communicate or the egg-beater, which communicates?
Which is more musical, a truck passing by a factory or a truck passing by a music school?
-John Cage, Silence
