“Getting Nowhere” is an international festival celebrating the centenary of John Cage, organised by students and staff at the University of York (UK).
It takes place from 14 to 17 November 2012 (Wednesday to Saturday). Papers and panels interpenetrate with performances of works by or linked to Cage.
Interpenetrate? Intersomethingpenetrate? What the eff do these earnest musicologists think the Great Simplifier would have made of their constipated mangling of his language? One-word answers in four letters, please.
Here’s the conference schedule. Try to keep a straight face: http://www.gettingnowhere.org/schedule.php
