THERE WILL NEVER BE SILENCE: DOUBLE LP FROM MOMA/MOMA PS1 RECORDS. David Platzker. Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2015. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 30 x 30 cm. ISBN 9780870709708 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: There Will Never Be Silence pays homage to both John Cage and the MoMA exhibition There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage's 4'33" (2013-14) in a uniquely designed edition of 500. In a 1954 letter that Cage wrote regarding his so-called "silent piece" 4'33" (1952), he stated "the piece is not actually silent (there will never be silence...)." Sixty years after Cage's letter, the debut album from the newly created MoMA/MoMA PS1 Records reconsiders silence, the lack of silence and the status of recorded sound. Organized by David Platzker, Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, MoMA, and Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator, MoMA PS1, the double LP features four compositions presented as artistic answers to Cage by artists Kevin Beasley, Lizzi Bougatsos, Sabisha Friedberg and Yasunao Tone. Their works shed light on how far Cage's ideas about sound have progressed in diverging directions.
