This evening on Friday 27th September at The Institute of Contemporary Arts, there will be a screening of Accentus Music’s film: John Cage – Journeys in Sound. The feature will include rare footage of Cage including concert excerpts with some of his own accounts, and will give insight into the many facets of the revolutionary artist and composer, Cage himself.

This screening is part of the ICA’s selection of highlights from the 2013 Montreal International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA). Like many that will appear in this series, there is an extended introduction and a Q&A. Tonight this will be with composer and performer Susan Stenger.

The screening begins at 7pm in Cinema 1. Take a look at the website, to find out more about tonight’s event and where to buy tickets. Also, you can find out more about the series here.

We are thrilled to announce that Accentus Music has been honoured with the Silver Hugo for ‘Best Documentary, Arts/Humanities’ at the Chicago International Film Festival Television Awards for John Cage – Journeys in Sound. 

The documentary, which combines rare archival footage with concert excerpts and a series of interviews with former associates of Cage, has already been awarded three awards in the past four months: the ‘Best Documentary’ award at the Golden Prague Festival, ‘Best Educational Program’ at the FIFA in Montréal, along with an International Classical Music Award in the ‘DVD Documentaries’ category.

Accentus Music’s upcoming release of Bruckner’s 5th Symphony is eagerly awaited, following the success of the first instalment of the symphonic cycle series. Performed by one of the oldest orchestras in the world, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim, The Mature Symphonies was performed in just under a week: an astonishing accomplishment.

Watch the trailer for John Cage – Journeys in Sound below, for an insight into the multi-award winning DVD. Also, keep up to date with Accentus Music news through Facebook, Twitter and regular blogs on the WildKat PR website.
