CAGE, JOHN: Cheap Imitation
CD reissue of the classic 1977 release by the Italian experimental label Cramps, performed by Cage himself and recorded by David Behrman and 'Blue Gene' Tyranny at Mills College. This is a linear piece for solo piano, derived initially from Erik Satie's Socrate in which an endless modular melody unfolds, without pianistic expression or lyrical articulation. Notes by Cage himself, including an imaginary conversation with Satie.
