CCAD was part of an international collaboration to create a performance art event featuring the experimental music of one of America’s most influential and controversial composers, John Cage.
The show, fittingly titled Vir2ual Cage, gave audiences a chance to engage with and experience one of Cage’s most elaborate compositions, the Song Books. The songs were constructed assemblages where technologically sophisticated uses of sound, were juxtaposed with radical staging, found materials, animation, video, and movement.
CCAD Media Studies associate professor Michelle Lach collaborated with people from CalARTS (CA), University of York (UK), and Orpheus Institute Belgium, to put together this unique multi-media experience.
