The Heart of the Matter

While I prepare the next Woolrich post. . .

John Cage: One of the things that showed up when the Frenchmen, headed by Boulez, began to object to my work and ideas, they objected to the notion that music was made of sound.

Morton Feldman: Yes, I always thought that was extraordinary. It was like the medical profession objecting to the fact that Semmelweiss said that they should wash their hands when they perform an operation.

from the first of the Cage/ Feldman WBAI Radio happenings.
