Although John Cage was trained in the European tradition, he was quick to forge his own unique style, rejecting the Western concept of music as a dramatic development from A to B and instead viewing it as a state of mind, changing but not heading towards a goal. The development of this approach is particularly apparent in his works for percussion - the focus of this CD - where the instrumental family's hitherto traditional role of simply supporting the phrasing and architecture is rejected, its primal energy instead harnessed and showcased as a source for new sounds. 'I do not deal in purposes; I deal in sounds,' wrote Cage of Sixteen Dances, the first piece on the album. It's an apt description for pretty much his entire musical oeuvre.

Sixteen Dances in fact form a pretty clear example of Cage's approach, whereby systematic sections of music underpin the work but are not necessarily played in the order given in the score. The execution of the performance is very much left to chance, therefore, although the work's clear structure, coupled with motivic variation and development throughout, ensure that there remains a dimension of deliberate intention - even if the music often sounds playful and without direction! Credo in Us is remarkable for the intrusion in 'artistic sound' of sounds from daily life - note the use of the radio and phonograph in order to cite works by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky or Shostakovich. Also featured is Third Construction, which also makes use of percussion instruments without pitch, thus stimulating the listener to focus on the sound, the rhythm in the sound and the new approach to form.

Performing these engaging, fascinating pieces are Ars Ludi, a variable percussion ensemble that uses its international concert activity to raise awareness of the need for more contemporary percussion repertoire. All of the works make use of the piano, and the group is joined by fellow Italian Giancarlo Simonacci for the recording.
