Having fallen in love with John Cage during an Art History lecture about the 'Event' at Black Mountain College I moved to New York to work for his estate, working closely with the director of the John Cage Trust, between 2001 and 2007. I have been a specialist advisor on the work of John Cage for projects including the exhibition of Cage and Merce Cunningham’s drawings at Inverleith House, Edinburgh in 2007, the exhibition Invention: Merce Cunningham & Collaborators at the New York Public Library for Performing Arts, New York also in 2007, and for which I created the accompanying publication and, most recently, for the exhibition, sound installation, and publication Ryoanji at Galerie Thaddæus Ropac, London (November 2018 – January 2019). I have also created film programmes, and unique performances of Cage's work including Cage in the Garden (2007) at the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh which included Cage compositions that use plants and natural materials as instruments, Child of Tree (1975), Branches (1976), and Inlets (1977). and those incorporating 'local' sounds: 4'33" (1952), 0'00" (4'33" No.2) (1962), and Scottish Circus (1990). In 2012, I was commissioned by the Cage Trust to develop an online version of Cage's chess-based composition Reunion (1968), which premiered in tandem with my play Laquearia at Summerhall as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2013. These performances were supported by one of four grants awarded to Cage projects by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in honour of Cage's 2012 centenary celebrations. Digital Reunion (2013) programmed by Ian Miguel and Chris Jefferson of the University of St Andrews' School of Computer Science is hosted online by the John Cage Trust. The inaugural project of the curatorial and publishing company I co-founded, Smith+Brown, was the first full re-creation of Cage’s infamous first ‘happening,’ the ‘Event’ (Theatre Piece No. 1 (1952)) at Black Mountain College. The performances in Soho in April of 2016 featured new work by Richard Wentworth, new choreography by Julie Cunningham, and contemporary music performed by The Hermes Experiment. In 2017, to celebrate the publication of Reception: The Radio-Works of Robert Rauschenberg and John Cage written by Alana Pagnutti and published by Smith+Brown, we produced the first UK performance of Cage's composition for TV, Water walk (1959) performed by Arthur Bruce at Cafe OTO. In the autumn of 2019, I produced Mewantemooseicday 2019, a day-long celebration of John Cage and Merce Cunningham that echoed their spirit of collaboration, the emphasis they put on teaching, and the importance they placed on nurturing contemporary art and culture. It was inspired by and marked the 50th anniversary of Mewantemooseicday, which Cage staged at the University of California at Davis at the conclusion of his residency there in 1969. It was also part of the 2019 Merce Cunningham Centennial Celebration. Mewantemooseicday 2019 was developed in collaboration with the University of Glasgow, The Glasgow School of Art, and Dance Studio Scotland at Clyde College.
