David MOSS: "Music By, For and Against John Cage"

An eccentric evening of solo pieces - 2 by Cage & 4 by Moss as homage & attacks on Cage's aesthetics and ideas. A loving tribute and tickle - with electronics, objects, voice, and percussion - to one of the giants of 20th century music. Some people think this is a little scandalous, but so was Cage!

"The most extraordinary performance was by David Moss, whose improvised vocals lay somewhere between scatting and scary. Think Jim Carrey doing an impression of Ella Fitzgerald while being eaten by the creature from Alien."
