Join us for this unique event at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Yorkshire's international centre for modern and contemporary art, for an exclusive dawn performance of music by John Cage. Apartment House present the UK premiere of Cage's Score (40 Drawings by Thoreau) and 23 Parts... in the atmospheric and contemplative
setting of James Turrell's Skyspace, sited at the Park's 18th-century Grade II listed deer shelter.

In Score (40 Drawings by Thoreau) and 23 Parts... graphical sketches are taken from Henry Thoreau's journals, combined with musical templates and ordered according to the structure of Japanese haiku poetry. This is followed by a tape recording of dawn made at Cage's home in Stony Point, opening the listener's ears to the outside world and mirrored in this performance by the changing light of the Yorkshire sky.
