About the Event
As with many of Cage's works, Song Books is indeterminate with regard to performance. In order to highlight the immense and open possibilities of the score, Cage: Beyond Silence offers audiences a rare opportunity to experience multiple versions of this work, further inviting audiences to engage with the ephemeral qualities of music so important to Cage.

Weaving through the museum's Dancing Around the Bride exhibition, this performance of Cage's Song Books features short vignettes and tableaus performed by members of the Ne(x)tworks ensemble.
