FEED: HPSCHD@50 Salon => IndeterminEAT
What is a HPSCHD?
Happy People Smiling, Cage n Hiller Dancing


Food, art, entertainment - this entire Salon experience celebrates the unexpected, and it happily engages with John Cage's habit of employing random procedures in his making of music compositions (including, most spectacularly, HPSCHD). Upon entering, a chance procedure will determine where, and next to whom, you will be seated.

Eric May and Easy Eats will design appetizers honoring Cage's passion for mushroom hunting, followed by a main course constructed from noodles and accompaniments (using chance operations), and finishing with a dessert that invites individual diner participation in its indeterminate decoration. All will be accompanied by beer from a hyper-local brewer.

Music sung and spoken by Bill Brooks and Harrah Friedlander will include three works by Cage, his haunting Litany for a Whale, an array of spoken Mesostics, and the Wonderful Widow of 18 Springs, whose text is a passage from James Joyces Finnegans Wake. Other entertainment will include a Mozart Dice Game video.
