Silence : lectures and writings by John Cage( Book )

156 editions published between 1939 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 2,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silence, John Cage's first book and epic masterpiece, was published in October 1961. In these lectures, scores, and writings, Cage tries, as he says, to find a way of writing that comes from ideas, is not about them, but that produces them. Often these writings include mesostics and essays created by subjecting the work of other writers to chance procedures using the I Ching. Fifty years later comes a beautiful new edition with a foreword by eminent music critic Kyle Gann. A landmark book in American arts and culture, Silence has been translated into more than forty languages and has sold over half a million copies worldwide. -- Book jacket

Liberations; new essays on the humanities in revolution by Ihab Hassan( Book )

11 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of these essays were associated with the Wesleyan Center for the Humanities to search a central theme: the Humanities in Revolution. True liberations engage some deep energy, quiddity, or humor of life, and this is what the present authors attempt to engage. A post-humanism is in the making. The authors do not summon from the future a complete shape. They speak deeply of certain issues and concerns. More, they qualify, challenge, and instigate. (Author/CK)

Anarchy by John Cage( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""That government governs best which governs not at all; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have." This quote from Henry David Thoreau's Essay on Civil Disobedience is one of thirty quotations from which John Cage created Anarchy, a book-length lecture comprising twenty mesostic poems. Composed with the aid of a computer program to simulate the coin toss of the I Ching, Anarchy draws on the writings of many serious anarchists including Emma Goldman, Peter Kropotkin, and Mario Malatesta, not so much making arguments for anarchism as "brushing information against information," giving the very words new combinations that de-familiarize and re-energize them. Now widely available for the first time, Anarchy marks the culmination of Cage's work as a poet, composer and as a thinker about contemporary society."--Jacket
Musicage : Cage muses on words, art, music by John Cage( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joan Retallack's conversations with Cage represent the first consideration of his artistic production in its entirety, across genres. Informed by the perspective of age, Cage's comments range freely from his theories of chance and indeterminate composition to his long-time collaboration with Merce Cunningham to the aesthetics of his multi-media works. A composer for whom the whole world - with its brimming silences and anarchic harmonies - was a source of music, Cage once claimed, "There is no noise, only sounds." As these interviews attest, that penchant for testing traditions reached far beyond his music. His lifelong project, Retallack writes in her comprehensive introduction, was "dislodging cultural authoritarianism and gridlock by inviting surprising conjunctions within carefully delimited frameworks and processes." Consummate performer to the end, Cage delivers here just such a conjunction - a tour de force that provides new insights into the man and a clearer view of the status of art in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET
