Ace Hotel New Orleans plays compositions by John Cage in the hotel lobby for 24 hours.
Ace Hotel and the John Cage Trust are celebrating what would have been Cage’s 105th birthday by playing the experimental composer’s songs in public spaces in all Ace Hotel locations on September 5. In New Orleans, the sound installation will be audible in the hotel’s lobby. Cage is best known for incorporating non-traditional instruments, randomness, and silence into his music.
