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."
