£350.00

Product description

John Cage (1912 – 1992) was an American composer, music theorist, writer, and artist. A pioneer of indeterminacy in music, electroacoustic music, and non-standard use of musical instruments, Cage was one of the leading figures of the post-war avant-garde. Critics have lauded him as one of the most influential American composers of the 20th century. His teachers included Henry Cowell (1933) and Arnold Schoenberg (1933–35), both known for their radical innovations in music.
