TU Berlin (Berlin University of Technology), Audio Communication Department, Germany
In March 2012 the MaerzMusik/Berliner Festspiele will be organizing the three-day international symposium “John Cage und die Folgen/Cage & Consequences” as part of their festival for music of the present day. The lecture contributions are to appear in book form with the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.
The symposium “John Cage und die Folgen/Cage & Consequences” brings scholarly lectures, reports from contemporary witnesses and fellow travelers and artistic contributions together in a conference program with the aim of opening up previously closed academic discourse and confronting issues of aesthetic, philological and historical impact with present-day experiences from artistic experience and practical performance.
