” … to consider the Song Books as a work of art is nearly impossible. Who would dare? It resembles a brothel, doesn’t it?” John Cage

Song Books is a collection of 90 ‘Solos for Voice’ that Cage composed in 1970. As a theme, he took a line from his diaries: ‘We connect Satie with Thoreau’. Satie being the eccentric French composer Erik Satie, whom Cage greatly admired. And Thoreau, the American writer who lived alone in the woods writing about nature and his own type of anarchy.
Songs and theatre and electronics mash up Fluxus-like food events, amplified board games, electroacoustic voices, ‘animal heads’ and intense feedback.
