Whereof one cannot speak.... 15 août 2010

I bought this book both because of my interest in Cage and the avant garde as well as my love of the critical insights of Kyle Gann.
And I was not disappointed. Gann's analysis of this seminal work of the avant garde addresses the social context of the piece as well as the various criticisms of it. And in so doing he makes it clear that this is, as he says, the best known work of the avant garde as well as a very important work from which we can understand much of what came later including minimalism, art "happenings" and indeterminate methods. He correctly positions it as a sort of "urtext" piece much like Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring".
Gann does this in an eminently readable style with a very complete set of references and a discography (yes, the "silent piece" has been recorded many times). He even gives strategies by which a performer can approach the interpretation of the score.
This can be read with equal benefit by academics, musicians and general readers.

Gann does a fantastic job at putting 4'33'' and Cage into context. The book is remarkably well researched. As Gann says, this book could not have been written in the 20th Century, given the amount of books that have come out in the last 15 years. In his introduction, Gann mentions that his interest in Cage started at an early age, and one can't help be influenced by his curiosity. "No Such Thing As Silence" has been very helpful with my own writing on 4'33'' and Cage; and has helped inform me as to why Cage just might be one of the most important composers of all time.

It's not just about silence 10 mai 2010

This is an extraordinary book, because by focusing on just one piece by John Cage, Gann brings into the discussion the whole world of art and sensibility of the period, the late 40's to the 60's.

This is a "must-have" and "must-read" for anyone interested in the period.

Get the print version--Kindle does not have images 7 novembre 2013
Par D. Chaloux - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
You can read the 5-star reviews about the content of the book, most of which I agree. It's a fascinating exploration of a controversial work by John Cage. But by the end, you'll realize that many of our presuppositions are vastly misguided.

I have to give this a 3-star rating however because the Kindle edition does not have any of the images in the book. The rights apparently were not obtained for the electronic medium. This is a great disservice to the readers. In addition, there is no warning on the Kindle page that this book is in anyway incomplete, which it is. Yes, the Kindle version is much cheaper, and we pay for it dearly.

I highly recommend the book, but if you get it, get the print version.

Like it or not, John Cage's 4'33'' is a monumental event in the history of the arts and this book has everything one needs to know about it. Very well researched and organized. It is also very informative about the persons and circumstances around the event.
