A pioneer of chance music, electronic music and non-standard use of musical instruments, Cage was one of the leading figures of the post-war avant-garde/5(69). It is difficult to discuss Cage's music as music; ie, to discuss the sounds, melodies (where they exist), harmonies and counterpoint (ditto), but, in spite of Cage's desire to distance himself from the music by using chance to create the works, this is still music, and it Cited by:   In John Cage played a chess match against Marcel DuChamp as part of the collaborative performance, Reunion, which also featured electronic music by David Behrman, Gordon Mumma, David Tudor Author: Jimmy Stamp.
