Pulling a Cage on Cage

Greg Davis puts chance to chance

How is meta-chance different from chance? That’s a question that informs Greg Davis’ playful remix of John Cage’s back catalog. The 10-minute Davis track, “through the villagepleasant (John Cage remix),” submits the entire collection of Cage’s work from the Mode Records label into an aleatoric blender, and it yields as a result something that sounds very much like a Cage piece: flush with ideas, charmingly impatient. Davis reports that the piece was produced for a Mode Cage remix album that was cancelled.
