John Cage: A Mycological Foray

John Cage: A Mycological Foray

John CAGE

Publisher: Atelier Éditions

A two-volume expedition into the composer’s mycological fascination

The beautifully designed “A Mycological Foray” draws its readers into John Cage’s fascination with mushrooms. Gathering together photographs, writings, illustrations, compositions and contemplations by Cage, the two-volume publication is an imaginative, explorative journey into the inner world of one of the most important composers of the 20th century.
“I have come to the conclusion that much can be learned about music by devoting oneself to the mushroom.” – John Cage

In addition to the first volume’s enveloping examination of the beauty of mushrooms and the forest, volume two is a reproduction of Cage’s 1972 “Mushroom Book,” created in collaboration with illustrator Lois Long and botanist Alexander H. Smith.

We recommend this book to anyone with a deeper interest in John Cage’s thoughts and works.

All texts in English language.
