The 2nd century of John Milton Cage, composer, philosopher, humorist, and passionate mushroom enthusiast, is here now, everywhere-at-once, and dwelling unshakably within the moving spirit of our own era. With the wit and intensity of John Cage’s inspired attempts to open the Ears of Perception, are six present-day dreamquesters–Patrick Clancy, Ellen Zweig, Cliff Baldwin, Jeffrey Ruckman, Ed Herrmann, and Dwight Frizzell.
