JOHN CAGE A CENTENNIAL TRIBUTE
The entire Tribute program...featuring John Cage and a collection of stories and VISUAL and SOUND ART by contemporary multi-media artists he has influenced at STREAMING MUSEUM including two exclusive screenings of the "composed film"
The Revenge of the Dead Indians In Memoriam John Cage (1993)by filmmaker Henning Lohner
Director Henning Lohner worked with John Cage during his later years, including collaborating with Cage on his only film, One11. During that time, Lohner filmed interviews and footage with Cage, and after Cage’s death decided to assemble some of it into this unique “composed film” based on musical principles – a tribute to Cage, his thoughts, music and influence.
The film also features 42 personalities–from the well known (actors, architects, artists, choreographers, composers, theoreticians, writers) to the unknown (like street cleaners and market vendors)–in conversation with each other. The result is an unexpected and fascinating combination of intellectual thought, viewpoints and opinions.
“The Revenge of the Dead Indians” is neither documentary nor feature film. The thematic story development is a combination of “found” video and audio landscapes along with theatrically directed readings and interviews. Each scene of the film is complete in itself as its own narrative entity, yet simultaneously contributes to the linear progression of the story line.
Lohner’s goal was to honor the creative credo of composer John Cage, to whom the film is dedicated. Attention is paid to “forgotten” landscapes: places we overlook because they are the everyday and the ordinary.
Concert performances incorporated in the film were recorded live during the “Musicircus” homage at Symphony Space in New York, November 1, 1992, and at the John Cage music festival at the “Akademie der Schönen Künste” in East Berlin, August 1, 1990.
This sound and visual material was edited to more than 1200 cuts before the final film length of 130 minutes was reached. The shortest scene has the duration of exactly one frame, the longest scene has the duration of exactly 4 minutes, 33 seconds. Sponsored by Mode Records
