Music Consumption: Kenneth Patchen and John Cage
02/24/2001 Kenneth Patchen and John Cage: The City Wears a Slouch Hat

This 40s-era radio play is delightfully surreal, and might be the first recording of Cage's prepared piano percussion. Amazingly, it hasn't been released until now. "Imaginary Landscape" is another radio piece--but played by oscillators and prepared piano. Phenomenal and moving. (I've recently discovered that the narrative is that of the savior coming back to the City in modern times.)
