Cool pictures.  I recognize Margaret Leng Tan.  Is that Lou Harrison at the bottom?

I saw Cage at the New Music Concert in Chicago at an old pier in the early 80s--a particularly infamous one that featured a Glenn Branca piece with 9 fully cranked guitars and a drummer  After the show, Cage called Branca's music "evil."

Mr Cage was one cool cat!   8)   So serious and so funny - You have to love this version of "Water Walk" from I've Got A Secret in 1960:
