BACK IN PRINT! Cage's performances were often wild one-of-a-kind happenings, and the shows that make up the recording of 'Variations IV' are no different. The fourth in a series of concerts that stretched the boundaries of what music was, 'IV' was designed for a group of performers playing literally anything they could get their hands on. They were also encouraged, if they got bored playing, to do "other activities" in addition to the music. The result, in this case, was a wild album of musique concrète that should sound familiar to fans of the Beatles' 'Revolution 9' - no question Cage's composition influenced Lennon and Ono's experiments. This gorgeous reissue of Cage's masterpiece is pressed on clear vinyl and wrapped in restored artwork that captures the unique and strange beauty of this headphone classic.
