I came across this interview not long ago through a friend up mine in the Bay Area. With respect to how furniture music shaped the way I see and approach my art, a slight re-interpretation resulted. I did not, by any means, shoot or interview this enigmatic genius: John Cage. I just needed to see it with one more element and I’m glad to share it with you.
It was back in 2001 when I introduced to his work through a play he wrote titled AN ALPHABET – performed on the UC Berkeley Campus Zellerbach Auditorium. Consequently I turned on to the work of Erik Satie and Marcel Duchamp who, in the early 20th century, coined the term “furniture music”.
