- Tribute to John Cage, A
- Program Description
In this documentary-style work created by Nam June Paik and narrated by Russell Connor, works by John Cage and Paik are juxtaposed. Cage is shown performing his famous silent piece “4:33” in Harvard Square, Boston, and creating silent pieces for camera in New York City by throwing the I Ching to determine locations for spontaneous performances. One of Paik’s robot creations is pictured on the street with bystanders. Composer Alvin Lucier appears in a talk-show-style format to discuss Cage’s importance.
