I wish there was a setting on Tumblr for “Automatically reblog NYPL’s Caturday posts.”

It’s an avant garde kind of Caturday. Check out this photo of famed composer and musical innovator John Cage — whose 100th birthday was last Tuesday — with a very cute black cat. When you’re done with that, download The New York Public Library’s new iBook about Cage, which is totally free and features videos, unique images, rare Cage manuscript material and more (it’s part of the Library’s free iBook series, Point - check them all out). When you’re done with that, then go to The Library’s amazing John Cage Unbound project, a living archive of narrated performance videos by professional musicians, students, and performers - you can watch, listen to, and compare artistic interpretations. You can also get an up-close look at rare John Cage manuscripts, which are housed at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. Once you’ve done all that and are totally inspired, submit your own video. Happy Caturday!
