Notes

First edition in English, first published in French in 1976. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper to publisher Marion Boyars; "for you, dear Marion, John Cage (The first sextuple)" The recipient's name and the signature have both been overwritten six times suggestive of the composer's use of chance, number and repetition in the Ryoanji drawings, creating here a similar- and in this case highly personalised - rhythmic blur
