INVISIBLE celebrates John Cage's 100th birthday by playing a cake

Experimental music group, INVISIBLE, celebrated John Cage's 100th birthday yesterday as part of a workshop collaboration with the Elsewhere Artist Collaborative and Weaver Academy. Using an aleatoric method that would've made Cage proud, students were asked to drop candies representing notation onto a musical staff decorated cake.  Guitarist Brian Koenig was then asked to sight-read the piece, as the cake was cut and distributed to the sugar-needy high school students.

This project was made possible by a North Carolina Arts Council Education Grant.
