John Cage Unbound A Living Archive
As John Cage’s 100th birthday quickly approaches, The New York Public Library invites you to contribute to its online project, John Cage Unbound: A Living Archive, which collects and archives video documentation of the life and work of John Cage. In particular, NYPL seeks contributions that elucidate the preparation of Cage’s works for performance. The project is ideal for college and universities offering coursework this coming academic year that engages Cage’s music.
„The world is teeming; anything can happen.“ — John Cage

John Cage Unbound: A Living Archive is an online record of John Cage’s work and its evolving impact on music and performance. Browse the full archive of work below … examine a collection of manuscript excerpts housed at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center … watch videos of musicians, students, and performers from all walks of life interpreting Cage’s music … most important, contribute your own video showing how you interpret Cage’s music.
