Emphasizing the intersection of acoustic and visual art characteristic of American composer John Cage’s life, this preview event for the 2012 Cage festival will take place in the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center, exploiting its unique acoustic qualities. New York percussionist Ross Karre will play three works from different stages of Cage's career: Cartridge Music/Duet for Cymbal (1960), Pools (1978), and One4 (1990). Each piece will incorporate live audio transformation and spatialization over loudspeakers via software designed and operated by AU faculty member William Brent.
