ARTS Pick: John Cage Mushroom Walk

File photo. File photo.

Wednesday 9/5

The sound of shroomin’

The work of John Cage can hardly be categorized. A revered audio experimentalist, sound pioneer, writer, and insightful painter, he is lesser known as a mycologist. The Bridge PAI’s Audio September series pays tribute to Cage’s posthumous centennial with a walk in the forest and an unintentional “natural concert” composed of the sounds heard while seeking mushrooms. Heady stuff. Let’s hope a tree falls and the birds join in. Meet at the gallery and carpool to Secluded Farm (off Thomas Jefferson Parkway). Free, noon. The Bridge PAI, 209 Monticello Rd. 984-5669.
