He didn’t have any ideas in his head. He paid attention to what he saw and heard. He let the thing he was listening to go into his empty head. He had no ideas. He had nothing.

John Cage on Henry David Thoreau (unpublished interview) 1982
IN CONCERT featured music by David Lang and Jason Treuting plus a revised rendition of Thoreau’s Desk (requires some assembly) played by percussion trio Tigue. Changes to Thoreau’s Desk included an added vocal duo and supplementing its instrumentation with a circular saw and AM/FM radio.
