Cage, John

Cage, John: Ryoanji (Hat [now] ART)
Label: Hat [now] ART    
Released in: Switzerland    

"In 1962, John Cage visite the small, sparse rock and sand garden Ryoan-ji (Peacful Dragon) in Kyoto. It was by all accounts a profound experience, and he carried away with him more than just a memory of a quiet, contemplative afternoon. If an experience truly transforms an individual, it becomes an idea, which we carry around with us. This idea is now a place - a point of reference - we may revisit at any time. Cage may have thought about Ryoan-ji often; in 1983 he applied an action to this idea."-Art Lange
