BMOP/sound's latest release, John Cage: Sixteen Dances, highlights one of the most significant and influential American composers of the 20th century. A long-time collaborator with dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham, John Cage wrote a number of works which reflected their radical ideas regarding the relationship between dance and music. Sixteen Dances is one such work, developed through the use of chance operations, a compositional process involving methods such as coin tossing and the I Ching or Book of Changes.
