A screening of the film "From Zero - 19 Questions for John Cage," and a panel discussion with U-M faculty on Cage's life, artistry, and legacy.
September 5th, 2012 marks what would be the 100th birthday of the late composer, John Milton Cage, Jr. Most known as a pioneer of the 20th-century avant-garde and experimental music movement, his interests extended beyond music into dance, writing, visual art, as well as mycology. His artistic perspective and unique compositional approach have influenced a generation of musicians and composers. This event marks the start of a year-long celebration of his life, music, and artistic legacy featuring SMTD faculty and students. Various events will be spread throughout the 2012-2013 academic year including concerts, film screenings, lectures, and other Cage-inspired "happenings" in honor of John Cage and his pioneering work.
