In a Landscape by John Cage was written for the dancer Louise Lippold in 1948. The structure of the piece follows the rhythmic patterns dance of the choreography for which it was composed.
A modal composition, the patterns alternate between a mode in B and a mode in G. With the use of both the soft and sustain pedals, Cage creates music that seems to suspend time. There is clearly an aesthetic indebtedness to Erik Satie. The score notes that the piece may be played on the harp or piano.
The recording comes from an annual concert I give at St. Andrews, Fullerton. The video is made of beautiful VJ loops I found at Archive.org by David Montgomery. I chose a stop-motion dandelion as the primary image, then layered in the other images by rolling a die for the length of the clip and inserting them into the film with the same die roll.
