John Cage: A Mycological Foray
John Cage: A Mycological Foray draws readers across the idiosyncratic, mushroom-suffused, innermost landscape of celebrated American composer John Cage. Upon the remarkable journey with Cage, one encounters assorted photographs, compositions, and contemplations; all in the very same unexpected fashion one encounters various flora and fungi species while mushroom foraging. Volume I encompasses Cage’s mycological-oriented Indeterminacy stories, diary excerpts, and essays; and the complete transcript of Cage’s 1983 performance, MUSHROOMS et Variationes.
John Cage: A Mycological Foray is developed in collaboration with the John Cage Trust.
224 pages hardcover including an unbound portfolio paperbound. Measures approximately 8" x 10.75", printed sustainably in Italy.
