“I have nothing to say and I am saying it”
John Cage’s art draws its strength from the paradoxical statement above: On the one hand, the transcending of personal, subjective preferences and choices with a view to setting free the full acoustic spectrum of the world; on the other, the creation of a supremely rich and constantly evolving armoury of composition, writing and performance media to achieve this goal of ‘nothing’—a quest which has left its mark on all art (and not just music) since the mid-20th century.read full text on sgt.gr

HPSCHD (1967-69),

Tribal Cities (excerpt). A music and video interactive installation.

First presentation: October 2012, University of Ioannina.

In order to experience at least one cycle, visitors should remain in the installation’s space for a minimum of 7 1/2 minutes. During this period of time, the visitor explores the projected and continuously changing global and habitable spaces. The visitor is invited to adjust a personal intimate space where his/her body motion and utterance unveils a refracted self; to cross the boundaries between the global and the local, the known and the unknown, the conscious faith and the unexpected result; to make the acquaintance of an undiscovered self via fragmented digitized images.

In acousmatic music visual cues do not exist. Hence, the listener has to explore a terra incognita, illuminate the sound typology and the form, and create mental images, such as representations of space and time without or with little assistance from the memory base. Although such representations are generally based on memory and experience, acousmatic music rarely provides enough meaningless information to stimulate them. During the process of this exploration, a representation should not be confused with the stimulus that produces it: the notion of a "closing door" applies only to perception, not to the sound itself. Therefore, when we describe the sound of a closing door, we really mean an image or representation of a closing door that has been evoked by this sound in our memory base: a mental image. I refer to these mental images as mindscapes.   T. Lotis, Ph.D. thesis.
