« Who is John Cage ? » On the occasion of the centenary of the composer's birth, this edition of TACET opens an investigation across a group of texts by researchers and musicians. It aims to revive essential problems that underlie Cage's oeuvre, but which continue to be profoundly at work in experimental music today.

TACET is a new research publication dedicated to experimental music. Published annually and bilingually (French, English), its ambition is to create an interdisciplinary and international space of rflection for this music, in all its aesthetic diversity.
TACET aims, on the side of experimental music, to contribute to the renewal of theoretical research by confronting and intersecting musicians'
speeches, studies coming from aesthetics and philosophy of art, from the critical renewal of musicology, from cultural studies and gender studies, from political thought, from social sciences and geography.
