John Cage – Song Books

Et tout cela m'est advenu par la faute de la musique.

An excerpt from Song Books

The 2011 Avant Music Festival presents an evening of John Cage featuring Ekmeles, pianist Vicky Chow, curator/pianist Randy Gibson, and trombonist William Lang.

Ekmeles performs Song Books, Cage’s inexhaustible grab bag of songs and theatre pieces, categorized by their relevance or irrelevance to the theme “We connect Satie to Thoreau.” Each singer freely chooses a program to fit the allotted time, and each performs independently of the another. Several of the programs will be chosen and organized entirely by chance operations.
