Product Description

Fifth in a series with previously unreleased works by emerging composers, this 124-minute 96kHz|24bit Audio DVD features the world premiere recordings of 14 chamber works composed or reworked after John Cage's 1992 death.

Review

John Cage would have been 100 in September. This project, which has been in process for several years, is a marvelous contribution to the occasion. No work seems duplicated by another, and almost every one repays repeated listening. The performers are quite committed and acquit themselves admirably. --Rob Haskins, American Record Guide, July/August 2012

This disc proffers more than two hours of 'post-Cageian' music; that is, music composed after the death of John Cage. Interestingly, much of it seems to have no link to Cage's style, but these are all 'new music' works by a wide variety of composers. All in all, fans of new music will find this disc interesting. --Kirk McElhearn, MusicWeb, June 2012

I'm not quite sure what, if anything, the pieces here have to with Cage aside from the fact that, more or less, they were composed after his death and presumably contain some amount of his influences (what doesn't?). Oh, and this release is on DVD format so there's quite a bit of music here (over two hours). And, by and large, it's very enjoyable. All in all, a strong set of music from a range of composers likely not too well known to most readers here but worth delving into more deeply, no matter what one's opinion is of Mr. Cage. --Brian Olewnick, Just Outside, March 2012

POSTCAGE

This eclectic compilation of minimalist music was released in the 100th year celebration of John Cage's birth. There are 14 pieces on this Audio DVD offering a wide variety of satisfaction for just about every kind of listener. Pioneering composer John Milton Cage Jr died in 1992, an incredible innovator of indeterminancy and electroacoustic creations.

Cage has been a major influence on such diverse artists as Brian Eno, Frank Zappa, and Sonic Youth. This collection clearly continues his amazing legacy. Such composers as David Beardsley, Walter Horn, David Kotlowy, John Prokop, and David Toub are included.

Single sustained notes, lasting moments of silence, poignant pauses, and softly persisting combinations of one, two, or three instruments have been recorded here. One by Robert Moran and Philip Glass is "Modern Love Waltz" (1977) has an Ambient theme of electronic keyboards and synthesizers. Combinations and variations of violin, piano, glockenspiel, viola, vibraphone, clarinet, and cello proffer an amazing variety of styles and colors.

Those fans who practice yoga and meditation will especially appreciate the mood enhancing offerings of POSTCAGE. Solitary mournful tunes, along with quiet contemplative soul searching, can and will happen. This is another in the fine series of 21st Century preservations of musical genius. The entire DVD is two hours of enjoyment, entertainment, and education. Enjoy!
