Sub Rosa continue with the vitally important task of keeping a wide range of John Cage’s extensive works available. Here we have a collection of some of his earlier works with electronic mediums, as newly realised by Langham Research Centre. Quite a good approach I’d say, as the open-ended, indeterminate nature of some of these pieces means that every realisation is different!

An excellent collection of six works for electronic media by Cage. The ensemble plays these works with authority and a keen commitment to realising these indeterminate scores as they were meant to be performed. The recordings are first-rate, too - a great album to listen to with headphones. There are some well-known compositions but other hardly recorded before. If you're into Cage, this is a nice add to your collection. You're not going to find some of his well-known pieces for piano, this is rather experimental. Try it and open your ears.
