  8. John Cage on devising We must construct, that is, gather together what exists in a dispersed state. As soon as we give it a try, we realize that everything already goes together. Things are gathered together before us; all we have done is to separate them. Our task henceforth, is to reunite them (quoted by Georg Laue, ‘…To Gather Together What Exists in a Dispersed State’ in Composed Theatre: Aesthetics, Practices, Processes edited by Matthias Rebstock and David Roesner, 2012: 136).
