“Begin Again,” a new biography of John Cage, takes a comprehensive look at the experimental artist. Instead of critiquing his music, author Kenneth Silverman recounts the composer’s life, work ethic and personal relationships. Silverman joins guest host Elliott Forrest to talk about this in-depth excavation.

i feel we lose something, when we don't embrace the inwardly quirky. i'm not so much talking about personality, as much as art. so much of todays art, is about extroversion in the extreme. we need the quiet subtle, i think, for a little balance. where could the next john cage come from?
