Christopher Hobbs Piano

BCMG and IKON Gallery present Cage’s Water Music for piano (plus radio, whistles, water containers and a deck of cards) as part of a live internet concert curated by the Forum of Contemporary Music Leipzig – the biggest highlight of the international art and music festival CAGE100. The concert will be one of several Water Music performances across Leipzig’s sister cities from 8 – 15 March, including Bologna, Houston and Lyon – all streamed live on www.cage100.com.

The setting for this six-minute piece is Ikon’s exhibition of work by the Russian artist Timur Novikov – who along with Cage and others, created and performed Water Symphony in St. Petersburg in 1988, a piece symbolising the unification of American capitalist and Soviet state culture.
