Notes & Reviews:

This CD is the first audio document of the collaboration between Cage and Cunningham, in expert performances by a classic ensemble of musicians of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Two works have been chosen from different periods of their collaboration. In the infamous 'Cartridge Music', the performers make use of phonograph cartridges to play various objects, toys and furniture to create a cosmos of unusual sounds. 'Five Stone Wind' is 60-minute piece, which is percussive in nature. The unique percussion sound is created from hand-made clay pots modeled after African "Udu" drums, which can make sounds from room-shaking bass to high pitched ceramic slaps.
