Laura Kuhn talks with artist Richard Kraft about the John Cage/Morton Feldman Radio Happenings, five programs that were aired on New York Citys WBAI between July 1966 and January 1967. These Radio Happenings were published in 2015 in a beautiful bi- lingual edition (English and German) collaboratively produced by Gisela Gronemeyer of MusikTexte in Cologne and Brian Brandt of Mode Records, now here in the Hudson Valley, an edition that includes a DVD that contains digitally-remastered recordings of all five programs. Both Kraft and Kuhn love these conversations, revealing as they do something of the day-to-day lives and thoughts of two rising musical luminaries of the time who were also extremely close friends. We listen to a bit of Radio Happening I at both the start and finish of the program.
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.
