John Cage was a quotable artist. On the subject of albums, he once remarked that records ruin the landscape. Elsewhere, in a treatise collected in his 1961 book Silence, the composer offered some opinions about jazz. The genre derives from serious music, he wrote, and when serious music derives from it, the situation becomes rather silly. That’s not because the pairing results in an avant super duo.

John Cage and Sun Ra performed together at Coney Island in New York. Strange, zany, and still at points incredible and amazing, John Cage and Sun Ra performed this concert in 1986. John Cage performs his vocal work, Empty Words (Part IV), then each alternates performances.
Sun Ra’s vehicle is lost in Coney Island, and it’s getting dangerously close to the curtain call. Inside, roughly two hundred students, avant-garde enthusiasts and promenade day trippers are sitting in folding chairs eating popcorn under canvas posters heralding Snakeology, the Asian Flesh-Eating Fish, a Midget Kangaroo and a Mermaid Parade that hang from the ceiling of Sideshows By the Seashore.
Fascinating and in genuine communal spirit.
