“Chance Operations are not mysterious sources of ‘the right answers’. They are a means of locating a single one among a multiplicity of answers, and, at the same time, of freeing the ego from its taste and memory, its concern for profit and power, of silencing the ego so that the rest of the world has a chance to enter into the ego’s own experience whether that be outside or inside”.

John Cage, Preface to ‘Lecture on the Weather’ 1975
