20 December 2011

On Wednesday, December 21st from 8-11am CT The Komodo Dragon Show presents POSTCAGE, the latest from OgreOgress productions.

Their 27th release, POSTCAGE is scheduled to appear on disc in late December or soon after. This 124-minute 96kHz|24bit Audio DVD contains 14 chamber works composed or reworked after John Cage's 1992 death.

Says Komodo Dragon Show host Von Wichert: "Does John Cage cast a shadow? As evidenced by the composers on today's show, the influence of his listening and composing philosophy continues to ripple."

One of the works is a hybrid composition by Robert Moran and Philip Glass and it can be previewed online until December 31st.

In addition to Robert Moran and Philip Glass the project features works by Maria de Alvear [Spain, Germany], Arved Ashby [USA], David Beardsley [USA], Dionysis Boukouvalas [Greece], Marc Chan [Singapore, USA], J.R. Dooley [UK], Jürg Frey [Austria], Walter Horn [USA], David Kotlowy [Australia], Sergio Luque [Mexico, Spain], John Prokop [USA], Sebastián Jatz Rawicz [Chile] and David Toub [USA].

The album can be purchased in advance at Amazon.
