John Cage


In 1968, at a concert called "Reunion" at Ryerson Polytechnic in Toronto, artist Marcel Duchamp played chess against avant-garde composer and event organizer John Cage. The music was produced by a series of photoelectric cells underneath each square of the chessboard which were sporadically triggered during normal game play.
