Lecture by Olga Manulkina:
JOHN CAGE: BETWEEN THE WEST AND THE EAST
The lecture will explode the popular myths about John Cage, about his “location on the map between the West and the East” How deep did Cage actually plunge into the eastern mindset? Were his discoveries a novelty for the Western music culture? These and many other issues will be covered in the lecture.
