John Cage was so busy

One spring morning
I knocked
on Sonya
Sekula’s door.



She lived across
the hall.


Presently
the door was opened
just a crack
and
she said quickly,




“I know you’re very
busy:
I won’t take a
minute of your time.”

John Cage on a mother and her son

A mother and son visited the
Seattle Art Museum.

Several rooms were devoted
to
the work of Morris Graves.


When
they came to one
in which
all of the paintings were
black,
the mother,

placing
a hand across her son’s
eyes,

said,

“Come, dear,
mother doesn’t want
you to see these things.”

Natacha Atlas - Mon Amie La Rose

John Cage about Schoenberg

Years ago
when I was studying
with
Arnold Schoenberg
someone
asked him

to explain

his technique

of twelve-tone

composition.

His
reply
was
immediate:


“That

is none of your business.”

John Cage's stories: The perfection of the operation

One evening I was walking along Hollywood
Boulevard, nothing much to
do. I stopped and
looked in the window of a stationery
shop. A mechanized pen
was suspended in space in such a
way that, as a mechanized roll of paper
passed by it, the pen went
through the motions of the same
penmanship exercises I had learned
as a child in the third grade.
Centrally placed in the
window was an advertisement explaining
the mechanical reasons for the
perfection of the operation of
the suspended mechanical pen.
I was fascinated,
for everything was going wrong.
The pen was
tearing the paper to shred…

MASETTO
Ho capito, signor sì!
Chino il capo e me ne vo.
Giacch´ piace a voi così,
Altre repliche non fo.
Cavalier voi siete già.
Dubitar non posso affé;
Me lo dice la bontà
Che volete aver per me.
A Zerlina, a parte:
Bricconaccia, malandrina!
Fosti ognor la mia ruina!
A Leporello, che lo vuol condur seco:
Vengo, vengo!
A Zerlina:
Resta, resta.
È una cosa molto onesta!
Faccia il nostro cavaliere
cavaliera ancora te.
