‘I began playing Cage's music in the 70s and continued in the States, there was John with his luminous smile. Later, I received a European grant for composers and choreographers. There were eight of us and Dominique Boivin was one of the choreographers. We worked together both morning and evening, did performances and went mushroom hunting on the weekends. John was the cook. He taught me so much about music, about sound, about human beings... Later, he dedicated Ryoanji for double bass and ensemble to me, which I played under the enlightened eyes of Merce Cunningham and Tiny Duchamp.'
