This is a fascinating portrait of an unusual artist (John Cage) who has had a lasting impact on modern music that has continued twenty years after his death.

For a film that centers on the creation of sound, a good soundtrack is vital to getting the point across. Here we get the full impact of the amazing aural palette that was contained in Cage’s playbook.

John Cage will deliver a real shock to the senses of listeners accustomed to traditional classical music forms. Unlike his predecessors, Cage opened up the sonic spectrum with unconventional instruments and performance practices. Either way, this documentary is an excellent way to meet one of the 20th century’s most challenging musical figures on his own turf. Thanks go to Accentus for making this BD available and giving it such great production values. © 2012 Blu-rayDefinition.com Read complete review

John Cage: Journeys in Sound is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Accentus Music…The contemporary interview segments fare best in this documentary, as should be expected, with good detail and clarity, and fairly robust and well saturated color.

John Cage: Journeys in Sound is an absolutely fascinating documentary…The archival footage with Cage, his life partner choreographer Merce Cunningham, and several artists is the most interesting aspect…Certainly anyone with an interest in twentieth century composition will want to check out this intriguing piece. Recommended. © 2012 Blu-ray.com Read complete review
