7 Dudley Cinema in Venice presents John Cage’s One (2007, 90m) at 6:30 pm. Free admission. “Maverick composer John Cage's black-and-white meditation on the waxing and waning of light: Candle-like apertures appear, expand, then recede from view while Cage's orchestral work 103 simmers with sustained strings and occasional punctuations from oboe, trumpet, tympani, and other instruments. One11 is a visual counterpart to Cage's 'silent' composition 4:33, questioning our concepts of emptiness.”
The Last 10 Years is a part of Academy of New Music Theater’s Concert Series at the NoHo Arts Center. Dana Shaw and Christopher Maikish host the retrospective that celebrates originally composed musical theater of the last decade. $20.
