Some time ago, Ralph Lichtensteiger sent a message to SILENCE, the John Cage mailing list, requesting “… stories about your experience with the phenomena of Silence and noise …”  

The result is Silence/Stories, a print ready 66 page pdf file that includes the stories, images and bios of the contributors. Contributors represent a wide array of backgrounds. Some worked with John Cage. Others wrote about him, or used some of his methods and ideas in their own work.  (Full disclosure – this post was written by a contributor, although not one of those referred to in the previous  two sentences). Some stories include anecdotes or responses to John Cage, and others describe “Cage influenced listening.”  You can downdoad the PDF here  or here.
