John Cage turns 100 in 2012, and all manner of events are underway for a worldwide celebration. At Ptarmigan, we'll be hosting ongoing meetings that will investigate his numerous writings, theories, and compositions. The Tallinn Cage group is organised around the model that Cage's ideas are openings and portals into creative practice; we will begin as a reading group, but hopefully delve into interpretations and performances as the year progresses.
The group is open to all! We'll begin by looking at Cage's most well-known book, Silence, and tonight we'll discuss the first 65 pages ('The Future of Music' through 'Forerunners of Modern Music'). If you need the text, get in touch, as we can provide it.
For more information, see The Cage Centennial.
The idea of this workshop is to introduce electronics, the Arduino open source micro-controller platform and it’s possibilities to partipiciants. Arduino is a little computer that everybody can program to work with different sensor and actuators. You can create robots, synthesizers, alarms or something rather peculiar.
The workshop is primarily intended for those who are not familiar with electronics and Arduino.
