The Cornell Avant Garde Ensemble (CAGE) was founded in early Spring 2011 as a performing ensemble dedicated to freely improvised music.  CAGE is a collective of musicians committed to the realization and enactment of new and experimental works. Its founding was a natural outgrowth of a critical mass of interest and expertise at Cornell, a coincidence of people with shared experiences, backgrounds, and enthusiasm. CAGE is, therefore, an exercise in collective artistic serendipity. “It is the nature of our group to be responsive, to be always listening. We thrive on the unknown…” :: Kevin Ernste in the Cornell Daily Sun
