58285 the other three

‘I do not,’ said Confucius, ‘enlighten those who are not
eager to learn, nor arouse those who are not anxious to give
an explanation themselves. If I have presented one corner of
the square and they cannot come back to me with the other
three, I should not go over the points again.’

(Using as my guide the example of John Cage’s _Cartridge
Music_ I selected a number of common surfaces and recorded
them in the most direct way I could imagine: the metal grill
at the opening of the microphone was placed against the
surface, and then moved at a variety of accelerations. This
“direct concrete” approach resulted in the source material
which was then further processed and interwoven.)
