John Cage: Two 3 / Stefan Hussong, accordian & Wu Wei, sheng

Album Summary

>Cage, John : Two3, for sho & 5 conch shells (one player)
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In 1990 John Cage met sho player Mayumi Miyata, who requested he write a piece for the ancient Japanese mouth organ. Cage was deeply impressed by the sound of this instrument and in 1991 he wrote Two3 for sho and five water-filled conch shells - one of the so-called "Number Pieces" Cage worked on during the last years of his life. Although the sound of the piece's structure remains a mystery to rational thinking, it is directly accessible to sensory awareness - especially in the interpretation here played by accordion player Stefan Hussong and sheng virtuoso Wu Wei.
