Despite the east coast heat, I wish I’d been at the Suffolk Street Community Garden on the Lower East Side of New York on Sunday. There free103point9 revved up a couple of FM transmitters and treated the locals to a performance titled “Habits of Imagination,” an “outdoor public installation/performance using live broadcast radio and audience interaction in a celebration of John Cage’s one hundredth birthday.”
It was all part of the Underground Zero festival, a celebration of performance art and avant-garde theater.
You’d never know it was the Big Apple, looking at this bucolic scene below . . . wonder what Cage pieces they played?
