Valentine for John Cage: Evening 2 Part 1

On Valentine’s Day (Feb 14), Norte Maar hosted the first part of the second installment of our continuing Cage Transmitted series. We were joined by experimental composer Atau Tanaka, who gave a performance of Pure Data running on a battery of iPhones, sampling and resampling things and nothings, in hommage to Cage. Atau borrowed sounds from a blender and a coffee grinder to complete his spontaneous score.

Tanaka was accompanied by Bushwick local sound artist Bubblyfish, who, using contributions from the audience written on post-its, composed a live score incorporating the voices and the text collected on site.
