John Cage embraced chance, removed himself from the responsibility of making decisions. I wonder what it would be like to so wholly put oneself to the whims of another; thing or person. It sounds blissful, in theory. But in truth I like control. I like to set myself rules for my work, like Cage, and then I record my failure to stick to them. I don't think I could relinquish control entirely. Aesthetic decisions always take over, at some point, in the process of creating and I break my own rules. Did Cage? Did he really keep to the decisions made by dice or a computer? Or did his conscious mind step in from time to time?
