First Performance:September 27, 1993 by RZ, violin, Jerome P. Miskell, viola and Joey Harvey, 'cello at the Emily Davis Gallery, University of Akron
Comments:for John Cage
Program Notes:I began to work - slowly and with a lot of difficulty - on this birthday tribute to John Cage in San Diego, California on June 17th. After he died on August 12th it became even more difficult to continue, but then I remembered what it was like to be listened to by him. The work was finished in Akron on the 27th.
