ON THIS DAY | American Composer John Cage Died in 1992

Cage was best known for his piece titled 4'33" — which is characteristically absent of deliberate sound from the performers

 

American composer, music theorist, writer, and artist John Cage died on this day in 1992, aged 79.

A pioneer of indeterminacy in music, electroacoustic music, and non-standard use of musical instruments, Cage is remembered as one of the most influential composers of the 20th century.

He challenged assumed definitions of music, exploring aesthetics and performance art in Western art music. He often used found objects in his music and was a pioneer of the prepared piano.

Cage passed away from a stroke after a long battle with poor health.
