John Cage’s One7 (1992) · Cristian Alvear, guitarra
For any way of producing sounds. Can be performed as a solo (first player’s part) with One (EP 67208).
Length: 30 minutes
Begun in 1990, returned to and completed in 1992. Premiered in New York, July 23, 1992. This work was later used as music for the choreographed piece by Merce Cunningham originally entitled Tune In/Spin Out (later Rondo, and still later and ultimately, Installations). In Cage’s work, performers on unspecified instrumentation choose twelve different sounds each, with fixed amplitude, overtone structure, etc., and play within flexible time brackets. The first player’s part may also be performed as a solo, thus entitled One7.
