About the Author:

Larry A. Fader received his Ph.D. in religion from Temple University. His doctoral dissertation, which includes the John Cage dialogue published in this book, examines the influence of Zen teacher D.T. Suzuki on Western culture. Dr. Fader taught religion at Temple and LaSalle Universities, and at Trinity College. He went on to attain an MSW at the University of Connecticut, a degree he uses for clinical therapy practice. He has directed the Family Institute of Maine, and the Dialogue Center in Portland, Maine. He has taught, trained, and supervised therapists at these agencies and served on the faculties of the University of Connecticut School of Social Work, University of New England, and the Cambridge Hospital Marriage and Family Therapy Program of the Harvard University School of Medicine. He now lives in western Massachusetts, where he sees a small number of clients, sings, writes poetry, and takes care of his goldendoodle named Alexander and his cockapoo, Dr. Kumquat.

Review:

"This 120’00” book is an amazing taste... Through the space and time opened in this book, we have the privilege of being with Cage, and D. T. Suzuki, and Larry Fader, sitting in New York a few decades back... in this delightful and profound... little conversation, I feel I am having a really proper meeting with him [John Cage]. I welcome the experience, and joyfully recommend it to everyone."
Tenzin Robert Thurman, Jey Tsong Khapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies, Columbia University, President, Tibet House US

120’00” is a gem. It shows us Cage at his most thoughtful, humble, and sharp, painting a vivid picture of his study of Zen Buddhism and its consequences for his music. Robert Thurman’s foreword is as thought-provoking as it is charming.”
Miro Magloire, Composer, Choreographer, Artistic Director of the New Chamber Ballet, New York


“Zen philosophy informed Cage’s worldview and creative approach, as Dr. Larry Fader’s 120’00”: A Conversation with John Cage reveals poignantly. This 1976 exchange between Fader and Cage describes the profound effect of Zen scholar D. T. Suzuki’s lectures on the composer while also unveiling the delightful paradoxes in Cage’s music and the man himself. We come to see how severity and lightheartedness, control and freedom, composer and listener, ultimately humanity and the universe, are intertwined. The sound recording, reproductions of Cage’s visual artwork... combined with the contextualized interview itself, comprise a rich resource for anyone seeking insight into John Cage’s work.”
Joan O. Epstein, Composer & Professor of Music, Eckerd College

"Larry Fader’s interview with John Cage is one of the most revealing I’ve ever read. It touches upon religion, Eastern thought, cross-cultural influences, and approaches to artistic creation, in a way that is warm, genial, moving, multi-faceted, entertaining and provocative—all very Cage-ian."
Elliott Schwartz, Composer & Beckwith Professor of Music, Bowdoin College
