1989 reissue; originally released in 1977 as number 17 in the Nova Musicha series. Recorded at the Center for Contemporary Music, Mills College, Oakland, California, Cheap Imitation is a piece for solo piano by John Cage, composed in 1969. It is an indeterminate piece created using the I Ching and based, rhythmically, on Socrate by Erik Satie; it consists almost exclusively of a single melodic line, with occasional doublings, as an "imitation" of original score.
