Halberstadt Organ Project Celebrates Cage's Birthday
September 5, 2015 marked the 103rd birthday of John Cage. A full day event took place at the site of the Halberstadt's Organ Project to celebrate the occasion.
The day began with Cage admirers and fans being lead on guided tours through the grounds of the mansion and church that houses the project. These tours allowed guests to have an informed experience at Space for Cage...with Cage. American Poet Andrian Nichols gave a performance that included several readings of the writings of Cage and an organ concert that included works of Cage, Ligeti, and Johann Sebastian Bach followed.
The opening of Fluxus and Zen closed out the day of celebration. Artist Mary Bauermesiter and Rudolf zur Lippe, who worked with Cage during the 1960s, presented new works for Cage's birthday as well older works that the three collaborated on. Fluxus and Zen runs from now through October 3, 2015.
