Imaginary Landscape 5


Computer Application



This application is a digital construction of John Cage’s Imaginary Landscape No. 5. By dragging 42 sound files into the application, the user simply has to click “Initialize” for the sound files to be loaded in randomly and to begin the piece. This application can be used to create seemingly limitless realizations of the piece with relative ease. It is certainly exponentially faster than the amount of time Cage himself spent splicing magnetic tape! There are now versions available for both Windows and Mac computers and because it is a standalone application, no additional software is needed to run it.

A link to download the file will be emailed after the purchase is made.
