Aria was written for Cathy Berberian, whose own work is also represented on one of our posters. The vocal lines, pitched vertically and using 5 languages as well as innovative notation, are drawn in black, and the 10 styles represented by the dotted lines and colors (which are added to the black lines) must be established by the vocalist. In Armonia is a detail from page 12 of Aria. It is the sole instruction on that page, adding even more weight to the simple but poignant text.
Size: Adult Medium. Heavy-weight 100% cotton cotton. Quote in Cages own handwriting on the front pocket area: Shortly Ill be writing again (this time for orchestra). What will it be? ... I dont know. As usual I want to keep from interrupting the silence thats already here. Bubbles on the surface of silence. Thats how Thoreau described genius, that way or nearly that way.
