saying very little about takehisa kosugi

for the past few years i've been privileged to attend performances by the merce cunningham dance company in the seattle area.

the company's musical director is takehisa kosugi. kosugi's been with the company some fifteen years.


in addition to his musical director duties, he performs on a variety of electronic and acoustic instruments.

he's performed and collaborated with john cage, david tudor and others.

after the recent performance of tudor's "rainforest" & bryar's "biped", i took up courage to speak with him.

he was a very kind and gracious chap. he took time to answer mine and others questions without a trace of impatience - even after a 2 hour performance.

thank you for listening and responding, mr. kosugi, i'm very grateful for your time (and performances).
