This pseudo-biography of John Cage begins with a simple concept: What would happen if everything about a text, from the number of sentences to the structure of the passages, were determined by chance? Here, for the first time in English, writer Vincent Tholomé, author of over 20 volumes of experimental verse, presents us with a hybrid work that, above all, seeks to explore the realms of pure invention. Comprised of “8 solos, duos or trios,” The John Cage Experiences invites readers to enact the comedy and drama of John Cage, including stage directions for acting out each piece as “John Cage or his equivalent,” adding yet another layer of possible invention that will change with every reading or performance of the text.
