First session: 49 Waltzes for the Five Boroughs - HYMN TO THE SACRED MUSHROOM - AN EXPEDITION TO CAGE’S SEMIOSPHERE

49 Waltzes for the Five Boroughs
: a  film by Don Gillespie and Roberta Friedman 1994-1995 (2008 version)
From a composition by John Cage dedicated to the first New York issue of Rolling Stone magazineof 6 October 1977


Prelude Bob Cobbing
Bob Cobbing (1920-2002) was a key figure in the British Poetry Revival. A passionate explorer of ambient sound effects, Cobbing is commemorated here with a poem as a prelude to a radically ambient work by John Cage. In fact Cobbing dedicated this brief poem to the American composer and inventor of happenings and so it provides a fitting introduction to Cage’s 49 Waltzes for the Five Boroughs in the film by Don Gillespie and Roberta Friedman.


John Cage

49 Waltzes for the Five Boroughs for performer(s) or listener(s) or record maker(s) - (1977)

John Cage’s artwork is a suite of waltzes build by from 49 multicoloured triangles arranged on top of the Hagstrom map of New York. This initial work was published for use by performer(s) or listener(s) or record maker(s), with the exact individual street locations and their visible neighbourhoods, thus establishing the precise point for listening or viewing situated in the three vertices of each triangle. The waltz is only derived therefore from the base triangle of perception generating the artwork (in this case a film).
