Laura Kuhn talks with Jonathan Hiam, Curator of Music and Recorded Sound at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, who specializes in American music and recorded sound, with emphasis on 20th-century music. He oversees one of the worlds largest sound archives, which contains audio recordings and other materials that document the earliest days of recording through to todays digital media. He also curates and assists researchers with the extensive American Music Collection, which covers the full range of American music, from early manuscripts, scores, and sheet music to the papers of major contemporary American composers, including the extensive John Cage Music Manuscript Collection. Most recently Hiam has produced a series of short videos that explore composer and sound artist Maryanne Amachers work through conversations as a shared engagement across social time and distance. Hiam holds an MA in Music History and Literature from Boston University and a PhD in Musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
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.
