In this essay, Uno-Everett (a C-MAP visiting scholar in 2012) makes a case for the political currents in 1960s avant-garde music, which has often been characterized as apolitical by composers, scholars, and critics. Focusing on the Sogetsu Art Center between 1960 and 1964, Uno-Everett discusses the roles of Yoko Ono, Yuji Takahashi, Toshi Ichiyanagi, and John Cage in shaping a radical avant-garde.
