Laura Kuhn talks with Emanuel Dimas di Melo Pimenta, a true Renaissance man who has functioned throughout his lengthy career as a composer, architect, urban planner, photographer, and writer. He hails from Sao Paolo, Brazil, and was introduced to John Cage in 1985 by none other than Augusto de Campos, co-founder with his brother Haroldo of the Concrete poetry movement in Brazil, at the Biennale de Sao Paulo, where both were giving concerts. Pimenta became a commissioned composer for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, producing compositions that were used for three of Cunninghams works " "Fabrications" (1987), "Trackers" (1991), and "Windows" (1995). We talk about his various endeavors, including a little-known conversation he had with his good friend Ornette Coleman on the subject of John Cage. The audio excerpt well listen to at the close of tonights program is from Emanuels last work for Cunningham which he presented as a gift to the choreographer on the occasion of his 90th birthday: "Reed (2009), in a version for transverse flute and saxophone and performed by Pimenta on flute and Paul Goldberg on sax.
The late Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Kenneth Silverman once described his "Begin Again: A Biography of John Cage" (Knopf, 2012) as the hardest book hed ever written. This was because, as he put it, pick up any rock and theres John Cage! Indeed, Cage was not only a world-renowned composer, numbering among his compositions the still notoriously tacet 433, but a ground-breaking poet, a philosopher, a chess master who studied with Marcel Duchamp, a macrobiotic chef, a devotee of Zen Buddhism, a prolific visual artist, and an avid and pioneering mycologist. He was also life partner to the celebrated American choreographer, Merce Cunningham, for nearly half a century, and thus well known in the world of modern dance.
