The composer John Cage wasn’t only known for his alternative ways of making music, he was also known for his writing. For Cage Transmitted: Evening 3 Part 1 artist and writer Lawrence Swan performed a reading of Cage… well not exactly!
Lawrence Swan is a Brooklyn-based neo-folk artist who makes drawings and texts in various media. His paintings were recently exhibited in a two person show with Lori Ellison at Valentine Gallery, Ridgewood. He is the author of two blogs: Panic in The Zero Decade and New Clean Blog, which is a kind of online sketchbook and studio visit. His Art Bum Comics was available online for awhile and is now in a clay jar hidden in a cave near the Dead Sea. He contributes text and vocal apparatus to the Audio Artists electric music combo. For Cage Transmitted: Evening 3 Part 2, Swan will perform Prepared Text In At Least Four Dimensions (2012).
