September 5, 2012, John Milton Cage Jr., American iconoclast, composer, writer, music theorist and author would have been 100 years old.  He is considered to be one of the major figures in the postwar avant-garde and one of the most influential American composers of the 20th century. 

John Cage is best remembered for a composition from 1952, titled 4'33" (four minutes thirty-three seconds).  The work is an instruction to the pianist not to play during the duration of the piece, and the music is defined as the sounds as heard by the audience during the interval.  Other pioneering areas included the use of prepared pianos, instruments used in unintended ways, recordings and other electronic means of producing sound, the use of chance in composition (mainly through the I-ching) and graphic notation.

We offer, on the centennial of John Cage's birth, the releases below containing his compositions.
