JOHN CAGE MURDERS MODERN MUSIC.

Extraordinary signed photograph of the transformational avant-garde American composer John Cage (1912-1992) by Jim Tuttle. Taken in Buffalo, NY, in March 1968, Cage points a toy machine gun at the stage in a performance of David Rosenboom’s "To That Predestined Dancing Place," a work in three movements scored for "percussion quartet with theatrical elements." The performance occurred at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery for the 2nd Festival of the Arts. At the same event Cage performed his "A Room, She Is Asleep" with the New Percussion Quartet.

Signed and inscribed in blue ink by Cage, New York (1970s) to Jennifer Adamson, daughter of the great autograph collector Steve Adamson (1937-2020). In fine condition, although the signature is difficult to read on account of the contrast of the ink on the kettle drums (!)

An excellent and unusual John Cage photograph. .

Price: $1,600.00
