But the American composer John Cage (1912–92) wrote specific pieces for "prepared" piano, and visiting pianist and scholar Christopher Durrenberger '84 enlightened the school community about Cage's intentions during his visit to the campus September 28–30. Chris demonstrated to the community that Cage, sometimes dismissed as an eccentric who played around with musical sounds, was a serious composer.
