The strangest and the most experimental music I ever encountered, John Cage's self-titled compilation album (aka Nova Musicha No. 1) review is in my stories!
Through his studies of Indian philosophy and Zen Buddhism in the late 1940s, Cage came to the idea of aleatoric or chance-controlled music, which he started composing in 1951. The I Ching, an ancient Chinese classic text on changing events, became Cage's standard composition tool for the rest of his life.
And that was only one of his composing principles. Oh, well, listen for some of his most famous works right now, go!
