On the occasion of Performing Indeterminacy, an international Conference taking place from 30 June to 2 July in the School of Music, we are excited to present John Cage’s extraordinary One11 and 103.

One11, John Cage’s only feature-length film (created the year he died), is a composition “for solo camera man”.

Cage writes: “One11 is a film without subject. There is light but no persons, no things, no ideas about repetition and variation. It is meaningless activity which is nonetheless communicative, like light itself, escaping our attention as communication because it has no content to restrict its transforming and informing power.”

In this installation, as recommended by Cage, the work is presented with 103, a chance determined work for orchestra, written the previous year.

This installation is organised by the Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation (CAVE) at the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies in partnership with the School of Music.

Please contact Sam Belinfante for more information.
