John Cage: The Works For Percussion 2

Cage's vision of the future of music was first shaped by an intense creative period from 1935-1942, when he wrote many of the seminal works for percussion ensemble featured here.

Includes the rarely heard early Quartet and Trio and all of the famous Constructions. First Construction utilizes dozens of metal instruments which are beaten, sc and shaken, creating an other worldly mixture of resonant sound unlike any heard before it. Second Construction prominently features the prepared piano. Finally, Third Construction brings the greatest degree of complexity and the widest range of instrumental timbres yet, creating one of the first landmark pieces in the percussion chamber music literature.

The surprisingly beautiful sounds of everyday objects come forth in Third Coast Percussion's recording of Living Room Music, recorded onsite at the futuristic Ford House in Aurora, Illinois - designed by one of America's most iconoclastic architects, Bruce Goff, in 1947 - and utilizing the house itself as an instrument.
