John Cage Song Books and Film
August 4 @ 7:00 pm
Tanglewood hosts an unconventional, immersive evening of promenade music, theater, and film at the Linde Center for Music and Learning.
Experimental composer John Cage created Song Books, a collection of 90 solos for voice, voice with electronics, and theatrical action with and without electronics, with the motto “We connect Satie with Thoreau”— evoking freedom, non-violent resistance, and connections to the environment.
Selected songs are combined with film excerpts associated with Cage and his music for an unforgettable Full Tilt/Cinematics evening. This site-specific original presentation is curated by soprano Tony Arnold and pianist Stephen Drury and with Tanglewood Music Center Fellows from a variety of disciplines.
