Sound inventor, aleatoric music specialist, writer, mycologist, performance artist, Zen master, John Cage (1912-1992) was one of the twentieth century’s most revolutionary artists. This film, which was made to mark the centenary of Cage’s birth, combines rare archival footage and concert excerpts with a series of short accounts by Cage associates and contemporary artists, playfully revealing the many different facets of this pioneer.
