Ives Ensemble in John Cage: From Zero

John Cage: From Zero

1995 NR

See into the mind of avant-garde poet-composer John Cage. Dutch filmmaker Frank Scheffer and collaborator Andrew Culver present four conceptual short films that reveal the artist's unconventional creative process. Segments feature Cage delivering uniquely styled responses to esoteric questions, the Ives Ensemble performing Cage compositions, narrative paired with art, and spoken word laid over an orchestral movement.
