John Cage: Nature and Art

At Darmstadt
when I wasn’t involved
with music,
I was
in the woods
looking for
mushrooms.
One
day while I
was gathering some
Hypholomas that
were growing around
a stump not
far from the
concert hall,
a lady
secretary from
the Ferienkurse für
Neue Musik

came by and said,

“After all,
Nature
is better than Art.”
