Maybe it isn’t even music anyway 4.

  1. The question is not really so much with the historical Cage but with the inheritance of Cage, and along with him, the particular mostly white, mostly male avant-garde/conceptual project he helped to create. For me these are questions of both freedom and a certain understanding of politics (as action, as spaces, as stories), as well as questions of art (as aesthetics, as ideas). For the most part, too, they are not anything but interesting, perhaps, leaving more of a trace of feeling and resonance (or not) than any kind of real line of argument. But it seems easy for the avant-garde to take up argument as its mode – here not there, this not that, and here’s why.
