Through the Looking Glass examines John Cage's interactions and collaborations with avant-garde filmmakers, and in turn seeks out the implications of the audiovisual experience on Cage's career. The examples chosen highlight moments of rupture within Cage's notions of the audiovisual experience and the medium-specific ontology of a work of art.

Holly Rogers, author of Sounding the Gallery: Video and the Rise of Art Music This history asks us to re-engage with Cage's ideas about listening and perception through the lens of moving-image culture, while also encouraging us to re-read the history of experimental film from a sonic perspective. As a result, this is not just a book about Cage or avant-garde film. It's a book about the nature of collaborative creativity, the rise of audiovisual art and the emergence of new forms of intermedial culture in the Twentieth Century. Required
reading for us all!
