John Cage

Chipper Thompson

Composer Paul Elwood's music has been performed at concerts across the United States and throughout Europe. Elwood's entry into the world of composition came at Wichita State University, where he studied with acclaimed music professor J.C. Combs.

John Cage, one of the most influential and revolutionary composers of the 20th Century, was born almost exactly 100 years ago. He was very well schooled as a composer, but it seems as though his mission was to reject nearly every compositional technique he was taught, and instead push the boundaries, even the very definition of music. His results were, to say the least, interesting.
