Celebrate John Cage's 100th birthday by playing the John Cage Piano app on your Android device. One of the many ingenious innovations of American composer/writer/artist John Cage was his creation of the "prepared piano", in which he placed objects beneath and between the strings of a grand piano to create an entirely new instrument.
The sounds of John Cage's prepared piano are now available for you to play with this innovative app. Play meticulously sampled sounds of a piano prepared with the actual materials used by John Cage in the preparations for his Sonatas and Interludes (1946-48) as sampled under the supervision of the John Cage Trust.
Both paid and free versions allow you to your record your performance and share it via Facebook, Twitter and email.

Formed in 1985 by Rob and original bassist Pete Altieri, the band signed a record deal with Mercenary Records before finishing high school. Shortly after releasing their first album, the band went inactive when the record label failed. It took more than ten years for the band to reorganize and record a second album, but in that time their music developed a cult following with metal fans around the world.
Very few bands can say they release a new album every year, but that is exactly what Sacred Oath has done since 2007 when they released the critically acclaimed comeback album Darkness Visible (2007 Sentinel Steel). Till Death Do Us Part (2008) was listed on iTunes as one of the top 8 live metal albums, and last year’s self-titled Sacred Oath brought the band into the spotlight with a video premier on MTV2 Headbangers Ball and a Discovery Download feature on iTunes. Call it making up for lost time.
World On Fire represents the very best Sacred Oath has to offer and the band is currently planning a limited number of performances in 2011.
Their style of Death Metal is a mix of groove passages with extremely technical arrangements.
Their music can be found on iTunes, Amazon and many other stores.
“Livin Garden” is a metaphore that means the connection between humans and nature. The name was chosen for being easily understood and pronounced. Besides, it sounds great! In its career, the band had played in many places through Southern Brazil and shared the stage with important names of the world Rock/Metal scene like Blind Guardian, Circle II Circle and Ronny Munroe (Metal Church).
The first album, “Where I Can Breathe”, was released in 2009. As the 1º Single, “Age Of Lies” was very welcome by the general public, being aired in many radios worldwide. “Age Of Lies” also had a video-clip released on the internet, receiving a lot of good reviews and comments around the world.
In order to continue on the record promotion in 2011, the band is heading to United States for its first international tour between February and March. The “ROCKIN’ THE USA: Where I Can Breathe Tour 2011” visited around 15 cities in United States and definitely rocked the country and made their point, making a lot of new fans and friends all around, proving that Livin Garden is here to stay.
Now, the band has finished the tour and promotion for “Where I Can Breathe”, looking forward to work on new material for the next album, to be out soon. It will be heavier, prouder and louder. Wait and see.
We are here to rock your world. Hold on tight and enjoy!
