This piece originally started as an homage to John Cage’s score for Jackson MacLow’s play called The Marrying Maiden. The play was comprised of dialogue written using chance methods like the I Ching. Cage took the tape recordings of the plays rehearsals and used a serious of chance methods to cut up, rearange and manipulate the tape. I imagine the result was quite chaotic. Imagine watching a play in which the dialogue makes no logical sense and the background music is manipulated dialogue.
It is in this vein that I created Hunting for Mushrooms (unspoken word)
