Pauline Oliveros, Christian Wolff, Keith Rowe, and Michael Pisaro perform John Cage's Four6

Sunday, Jan 13, 2013 8:00p
International House Philadelphia, PA

Scored for a quartet with “any way of producing sounds,” Four6 is perhaps the most open of Cage’s Number Pieces. Offering no other directives than a series of time brackets, Four6 invites its players to individually choose and number 12 sounds that they are willing to make, and to begin and end them sometime during a set of fixed durations. As each performer has no knowledge of the others’ sounds beforehand, the result is unexpected and magical.
