In April of 1988, the Neuberger Museum at the State University in Purchase presented its seventh series of Leonard C. Yaseen Lectures, the years chosen speakers addressing the subject of time from three different perspectives. On April 10, Murray Gell-Mann, 1969 Nobel Prize winner and professor of theoretical physics at the California Institute of Technology, spoke about quarks, the postulated particles, and on April 17, the noted Peruvian novelist and literary critic Mario Vargas Llosa, spoke on ''Time in Relation to the Contemporary Novel.'' Lastly, on April 24, John Cage delivered his newly completed three-part mesostic poem entitled Time (Three Autokus), which consisted of three distinct poems based on source texts by Jasper Johns, R. Buckminster Fuller, and the opening paragraph from his own Rhythm, Etc., which appeared in his book A Year from Monday, published in 1967. Cages Time (Three Autokus) appears in Musik-Konzepte Sonderband John Cage II, edited by Heinz-Klaus Metzger and Rainer Riehn (Munich: Text und Kritik, 1990) as well as in John Cage: Writer: Previously Uncollected Pieces, edited by Richard Kostelanetz (New York: Limelight, 1993).
The late Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Kenneth Silverman once described his "Begin Again: A Biography of John Cage" (Knopf, 2012) as the hardest book hed ever written. This was because, as he put it, pick up any rock and theres John Cage! Indeed, Cage was not only a world-renowned composer, numbering among his compositions the still notoriously tacet 433, but a ground-breaking poet, a philosopher, a chess master who studied with Marcel Duchamp, a macrobiotic chef, a devotee of Zen Buddhism, a prolific visual artist, and an avid and pioneering mycologist. He was also life partner to the celebrated American choreographer, Merce Cunningham, for nearly half a century, and thus well known in the world of modern dance. Episode 085. EVERGREEN.
