Event Program (PDF)

red fish blue fish performs John Cage's percussion works and, following intermission, British composer James Dillon's East 11th Street (referencing Cage and his NYC neighborhood, although the address is fictitious). Cage's compositions include Inlets, Six, Five, Dance Music for Elfrid Ide, First Construction, and Double Music. Dillon and rfbf have an ongoing symbiosis: over three nights in September, the percussionists premiered Dillon's massive Nine Rivers at Columbia University's Miller Theatre.

During the week of their Cage concert at UCSD, red fish blue fish and Steve Schick are recording an album of Cage's percussion music in the Department of Music's studio that will be released by Mode Records. The project is part of an extensive collaboration with Third Coast Percussion and Percussion Group Cincinnati. The result will be a collection of CDs and DVDs covering much of the percussion music written by Cage. The November 17 concert includes all of Cage's music for the UCSD sessions.
