- KurzbeschreibungJohn Cage (1912--1992) is probably best known for<br>works that challenge the fundamental definition of<br>music---for example, his groundbreaking 4'33". In the<br>last six years of his life, however, Cage wrote 48<br>compositions now known as the Number Pieces---works,<br>usually scored for conventional Western instruments,<br>that often contained precisely defined pitches. Each<br>performer in one of these pieces performs his or her<br>music in a strict order, but the actual start- and<br>stop-times for each musical event vary because of <br>Cage's notational system called "time brackets." <br>While the time-bracket system ensured that the total <br>time for a performance would always remain the same, <br>it allowed sufficient flexibility to the performers <br>in the spirit of Cage s indeterminate aesthetic---<br>the brackets made the music became, in his <br>words, "earthquake proof." This book offers an<br>overview of the series, an exploration of<br>sources and compositional process, an analytical<br>discussion of selected works, a contextual inquiry <br>into the works with respect to Cage's interests in<br>American anarchistic traditions, and a concluding<br>discussion that considers aspects of reception and<br>historiography.
