"James Joyce, Marcel Duchamp, Erik Satie: An Alphabet" is a poetic, philosophical spoken piece by John Cage, based on his memories of decades of studying the works of Joyce, Duchamp and Satie. Live performances in German and English took place in 1987 at the "NachtCageTag" [NightCageDay] of the WDR Cologne to mark the 75th birthday of the composer, and in 1990 at the WDR Sound Art Festival "2nd Acustica International" in New York, with an outstanding cast.
