The composer and architect Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta met John Cage in 1985. Immediately he started collaborating with Cage and Merce Cunningham, in New York City. It was a collaboration of about 25 years, which would become strong friendship with both John and Merce. They made more than six hundred concerts together all over the world.
Now, inside the architectural space designed by Leonardo da Vinci, Pimenta will give a lecture about John Cage, in his one hundred years.

JOHN CAGE: Everything is possible when we have zero as starting point.

I have nothing to say, I am saying it, and that is poetry.

The highest purpose is to have no purpose at all. This puts one in accord with Nature, in her manner of expression.
