9 More Quotes from John Cage

You mustn’t become hypnotised by intellectual categories, continuous-discontinuous, stable-unstable, etc., which supposedly make it possible to think time.


People always think that there is something to understand. They imagine that the composer really had something in mind.

I keep my mind alive and alert, or at least I try to. As a result, everything dissonant, I hear as consonant. [I hear not only the number two, but also the plurality of the number one.]

That is why I try to make my music resemble my life. May it be free and without goal! That is, without object.

That is, since Tao, the ultimate term, is nothing or Nothingness, we could also conclude that we shouldn’t become mesmerised by the difference and that there is no ultimate term. Thus, no system.

That’s exactly it. Impose nothing. Live and let live. Permit each person, as well as each sound, to be the centre of creation.

Yes, ‘experimental’ – meaning what happens before one has had the time to measure it.

5 Quotes from John Cage

Each person, I repeat, is free to experience his own emotions. But they are no more important than ordering chicken! That means that you can’t dwell on them, you must learn how to detach yourself from them.

I have always been very fond of working in a team. It is a way of working which conforms to chance’s way of necessarily liquidating the habits of the ego.

While in the case of the ashtray, we are indeed dealing with an object. It would be extremely interesting to place it in a little anechoic chamber and to listen to it through a suitable sound system.

Chance, as I use it, is not something that I must control, nor that must control me. It is not the chance of the physicist. But that does not mean the physicist’s chance shouldn’t exist.

But the contrast between the freedom of sounds and the non-freedom of the dancers should give them the idea that a ballet is an encounter, a collision, and not just a unison.

Marilyn Manson

Manson’s new album Heaven Upside Down is expected later this year.

I’m a little over-anxious to release it, so it was done very quickly, but it’s by far the most thematic and over-complicated thing that I’ve done. In a way, it’s deceptively delightful to strangers. It’s like the old saying that the devil’s greatest secret is that people don’t believe he exists. – Marilyn Manson
