    John Cage (1912 – 1992) was an American composer, music theorist, writer, and artist. He was also instrumental in the development of modern dance, mostly through his association with choreographer Merce Cunningham (1919 – 2009), who was also Cage's romantic partner for most of their lives. On August 11, 1992, while preparing evening tea for himself and Cunningham, Cage suffered a stroke. He died the day after. Merce Cunningham lived another 17 years, dying of natural causes in July 2009.

    John Cage invented the Prepared Piano in 1938 when composing "Bacchanale" by placing screws, bolts, weather stripping, and small pieces of rubber in between the strings of the piano. The result sounds more like a percussion orchestra than a piano!
