Langham Research Centre and Ian Pace : The Music of Chance

Art Gallery


Tickets:
Free to The Bride and The Bachelors same-day ticket holders

subject to availability



The Langham Research Centre performs a selection of John Cage's electronic works from the 1950s.

Electromagnetic music made with authentic devices. Hi-tech circa 1955. The crackle and buzz of loudspeakers energised by analogue circuits and chance operations. And, as a prelude, the pianist Ian Pace plays two books from 'Music of Changes' - Cage's first work constructed entirely through chance events determined by the I-Ching.

Please note that due to tonight's performance, there will be no dance in the gallery this evening and Philippe Parreno's soundscape will not be played.
