By way of introduction to both Kraft and his latest work, Kuhn begins the program by reading thats a dazzling testament to its subjects basic incomprehensibility, which appeared in The Brooklyn Rails Dec. 21-Jan. 22, 2021 issue. Kraft speaks a bit about Cages role in the creation of "It Is What It Is" in his own introduction to the five-volume slipcase set: having seen/heard an installation of Cages "Lecture on the Weather" with his partner Lisa Pearson, publisher-in-chief of Siglio Press, at the Frith Gallery in London the day after Trumps election, Kraft felt a most welcome call-to-action that prompted a stunning response. Cages Preface to "Lecture on the Weather" is heard at the close of the program."All Things Cage" is a weekly program featuring conversations between Laura Kuhn, Director of the John Cage Trust, and Cage experts and enthusiasts from around the world.

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 049. EVERGREEN
