Extending Cage's Legacy, Lecture in Music Theory

GUEST SPEAKER: Rob Haskins, University of New Hampshire

TIME: 1:25pm

LOCATION: Bezanson Recital Hall, UMass Amherst campus

ABOUT THE LECTURE: Since the late 1980s, many scholars have wrestled with Cage’s ideas with varying results. The lecture will offer a provisional assessment of Cage's achievement, including both unjustified and justified criticism of that achievement by other scholars; it will point toward productive ways in which we can engage with and creatively extend Cage’s important legacy, using theater as the principal example.
