- MultiplicityThe Indeterminate Mind of John Cage
- John Cage revolutionized art, music, literature, and poetry through his experimental thinking and constant push to chall-enge accepted definitions. The use of indeterminacy and chance factors in his work became an integral part of his thought process. By removing himself as the composer and allowing predeter-mined variables to play out randomly, Cage was able to reach another realm of music that forced new boundaries on what was considered sound or com-position.This book aims to emphasize the thought behind each indeterminate piece and the idea that compositions, both in music and art, need not always have one planned result. The pages of this book directly reflect Cage’s Var-iations I & II, each of which applied graphic elements to his idea of ‘chance operations’ and allowed each interaction to gain a unique experience.
