John Cage Uncaged is Still Cagey
Author: David Antin
Publisher: Singing Horse Press (2005)
The two texts that make up this book originated as talks Antin gave in honor of John Cage's seventy-seventh birthday. Using Cage's poem "Composition as Process" as a point of departure, Antin explores a way of understanding how structure in art and life provides us not with a rigid blueprint for determining behavior but with the ability "to attend to no matter what eventuality" with spontaneity and grace.
