Erik Satie's Vexations
John Cage was the first composer to present a performance of Erik Satie's Vexations, a short piano piece played 840 times! As part of the BMC Celebration a team of eight pianists will perform the work in the band room of the P.E. Mauney music building over a period of 14 hours. Vexations is also being broadcast live over the campus television station. The public is invited to "drop in" for the performance and/or watch it throughout the day from televisions placed in various campus locations.

Erik Satie, 1866-1925
