Roger Nelson and Neal Meyer present a simultaneous performance of John Cage’s one-minute stories (Nelson), and Part III of Cage’s epic text composition, Empty Words (Meyer). Cage’s stories are alternately hilarious, poetic, and epiphanic. Empty Words, Part III is a mix of words, syllables, and letters from the Journal of Henry David Thoreau. The performance is a tribute to the classic Folkways album, Indeterminacy, in which Cage recorded his stories in one room, while David Tudor performed Cage’s Solo for Piano in another.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center: contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
