"Blackbirds Rise from a Field…": Production, Structure and Obedience in John Cage's Lecture on Nothing
Abstract:This essay presents a philosophical analysis of Cage's technique of rhythmic structure. It advances the notion that the form/content dialectic progresses in neo-avant-garde works to such an extent that the "content" of these works becomes their own "means". This I term the "involution" of artistic technique.
