    Fresh Air

  1. Today’s show: an archive interview with avant garde composer John Cage, who’s the subject of international celebrations this year, marking the centennial of his birth.

    Also from the archive…an interview with the late Robert Moog. A festival of electronic and visionary music in tribute to him takes place this weekend.

  1. It’s marvelous when we’re surprised by coincidences. Light or sound, in our presence. That’s one of the beautiful things about hunting mushrooms — is that they grow up and are fresh at just a particular moment, and our lives are actually characterized by moments.

    — John Cage, on experiencing the world as if it were art. [full interview here]
