Experimentations offers a detailed historical and theoretical analysis of the first three decades of experimental composer John Cage’s aesthetic production between 1940 and 1972, paying particular attention to his cross-disciplinary collaborations with the visual arts and architecture. The book sheds new light on some of Cage’s most controversial and influential innovations, such as the use of noise, chance techniques, indeterminacy, electronic technologies, and computerization, as well as upon lesser known but important ideas and strategies such as transparency, multiplicity, virtuality, and actualization.
