A fully remastered triple LP box set of Cage's historic performance at Milan's Teatro Lirico on December, 2 1977 where he reads the indeterminate text from his "Empty Words" book to an increasingly unruly audience.
 

Cage, John
Empty Words (Part III) [VINYL 3 LP BOX SET]

Cage, John: Empty Words (Part III) [VINYL 3 LP BOX SET] (MiruMir (Cramps))
Label: MiruMir (Cramps)    
Released in: Italy    


"When John Cage took to the stage at Milan's Teatro Lirico on 2 December 1977 to read from a portion of his not yet published book, Empty Words, little did he know that he was about to incite one of the great art riots of the twentieth century! As Cage reads aloud in what sounds like a nonsensical language (the result of using the I-Ching to extract a series of sounds and syllables from the journal of Henry David Thoreau), the Italian audience (many of whom did not really know who Cage was or what to expect from the performance) begins to grow increasingly unruly, eventually yelling for Cage to get off the stage! Cage, however, simply ignores it and keeps right on reading above the din for over 2 full hours. This fully remastered triple LP box set of this historic performance also features an explanatory text along with accompanying illustrations and photographs of the event."-MiruMir
