A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Rotation of musical note     I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones.
          John Cage, Composer_5 Sep 1912 to 12 Aug 1992

If you don't know much about him, here's a little bit from KQED's American Masters series. Personally, I think I enjoy Cage's philosophy about music more than the music itself, his new of sixty years ago still being maybe a little too new for me today. Still, his impact, through his own compositions and through his collaborations with all manner of artists, painters, other composers, and choreographers, is a long-lasting and definite game-changer.
