Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This was a thrilling trip through the 20th Century of conceptual art and music. The book is primarily about Cage and his ideas, but also touches on those who influenced him, like the Dadaists, Duchamp and Suzuki, the major artists that he influenced ( primarily those he met before he became famous in the late 1950s).
What was one of the most memorable moments of Where the Heart Beats?
For artists and people interested in art, and especially ideas that challenge convention, this book is ideal.
Which character – as performed by Jason Wineinger – was your favorite?
The narrator did a nice job, with a few odd pronounciations here and there. His impression of Cage was spot on.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It is a book that I would want to listen to again. It is packed with ideas.

Larson's excellent account of Cafe's influences and influence on the creative and spiritual also the intellectual. It is subtle and profound, often, very beautiful. Have struggled to get to grips with the music of Cage Where the Heart Beats has me reaappraising my previous ideas and listening and thinking about it with appreciation. It is also broad. It is about Art and artists. It is about Zen without the feeling you are quite getting it: tangible. Bloody Good!
