The music for Ciphony were first developed for Compagnie CNDC-Angers’s performance of Merce Cunningham’s EVENT, directed by Robert Swinston, which was performed at the Joyce Theatre from March 10-15, 2015. In the aesthetic spirit of John Cage and Merce Cunningham’s collaboration, Gelsey and John composed the music they performed separately.
