Description
The first part of this material comes from the 2nd tape of an interview conducted by Merce Cunningham Dance Company archivist David Vaughan and director Elliot Caplan with composer Earle Brown, who worked frequently with both Merce Cunningham and John Cage. He begins by speaking about his personal and artistic connections with the duo. He then discusses going to the movies with the two which shades into a wider anecdote about Cages father and popular media (3:08). Brown then speaks about his interest in Gertrude Stein and her work (6:00). He then considers Cages influence on current culture in America and Europe (7:30). This continues to the end of the interview (14:33) After a brief interlude featuring someone typing on a computer in the Merce Cunningham Dance Companys executive directors office, the material shifts to an already-in-progress interview with artist and psychologist Irwin Kremen, a member of the artistic circle around John Cage and Merce Cunningham. The interview is conducted at the Merce Cunningham Dance Company space at Westbeth in New York City. Kremen begins by talking about the way in which he came to know Cage, Cunningham and David Tudor via connections to the creative programs at Black Mountain College, as well as discussing the milieu, performances and events of these early year (15:30) These anecdotes continue until the end of the material.
