Just as Concert for Piano and Orchestra
was perhaps the major Cage work of the 50s and Sonatas and Interludes
for the 40s, so the performance of his Atlas Eclipticalis
played to a critical acclaim in the 60s. To this day, however, one might wonder whether it's really all that necessary to sit down and concentrate furiously all the way through, or simply let the mind wander ("if the mind wanders, let it", as the composer once famously wrote). But even if you choose to spin this while you busy yourself with other more mundane tasks like picking mushrooms or consulting the I Ching, the occasional clashes of thundering percussions will soon shake you out of musical slumber.
