Cage: How To Get Started

Live Performances at Bard College
John Cage’s “How to Get Started” was conceived “almost as an afterthought.” Speaking about the subject of using improvisation to aid creativity at the 1989 Sound Design Invitational Conference, Cage proposed a collaborative framework in which sound engineers recorded and layered his improvised monologue subsequently. On April 8th and 9th three performances recreating the 1989 performance will occur at Bard College in New York. In addition to the live performances, there will be a physical installation about the original performance on view at the Slought Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The project is seeking scholars, artists, and interested fans in creating their own extemporized monologues with the chance to perform them.
The Bard College will present three performances throughout the course of two days and the following is the scheduled line up for the event:

Friday, April 8, 2-5 p.m.
Roger Berkowitz, Jamie Parry, Brian Dewan

Friday, April 8, 7-10 p.m.
Pauline Oliveros, Bobby Previte, David Degge

Saturday, April 9, 2-5 p.m.
Chris Mann, John Kelly, Olive Carrollhach

László Z. Bitó ‘60 Conservatory Building
Bard College
Annandale-on-Hudson, New York
