John Cage Concert for Piano and Orchestra 

In 2018 I worked making videos for this project lead by Philip Thomas. In the end he’s put together a fantastic resource for composer, performers, and really anyone interested in John Cage’s work. The project has culminated in an interactive webpage that includes the videos we made as well as extensive notes on how to perform John Cage’s Concert for Piano and Orchestra from the performers themselves. The site uses it’s own embedded player–so I can’t embed one here–but if you follow this link it’ll take you to my favorite video. Enjoy.
