John Cage Wire Primer talk in Brussels

Louise Gray will be giving a talk on 19 May at Brussels Huis 23 space based on her Primer article on John Cage that appeared in The Wire 161. The event is the second in an occasional series of talks being presented at Huis 23 that will draw on the series of Primer articles that have been running in the magazine since issue 154, some of which were anthologised in the 2009 Verso book, The Wire Primers: A Guide To Modern Music. Edwin Pouncey’s talk on Subterranean Metal, based on his Primer in issue 252, began the series last December.

Louise Gray: The Wire Primer: John Cage takes place at Huis 23 (Ancienne Belgique, Steenstraat 23, 1000 Brussels) Belgium, 19 May, 5pm, free, but reserve a place by emailing and putting ‘Cage’ in the subject line. More details here.
