ACHT BRÜCKEN


The Czech astronomer Antonín Bečvář published the collection of celestial maps Atlas Eclipticalis 1950.0 in 1958. Fascinated by the graphic constellations of the stars, Cage placed transparent paper on the maps and reinterpreted some of the stellar positions as notated music. The New York-based composer made other decisions with the help of the random generator from the Ancient Chinese book of oracles I Ging, which he was highly familiar with. The result is an orchestral work with up to 86 individual voices, scored for all the instruments of a symphonic orchestra. These can be combined at random: any combination of instruments, with or without electronic amplification, with or without conductor. All the information necessary for the musical implementation is notated graphically – pitch, length and volume of the sounds – but the sound production should never be unusual. In addition, the performance of Atlas Eclipticalis may take place simultaneously with Cage’s piano piece Winter Music (1957). This is another open work which may be implemented freely. For the performers – between one and twenty pianists – its art lies in combinatorics and letting go. What both compositions have in common – regardless of whether they are performed simultaneously or not – is that they do not contain any of Cage’s thoughts or feelings. “They are just sounds,” he said; sounds like stars.
