Indian philosophy and Zen Buddhism inspired composer John Cage and influenced his invention of indeterminate or chance-controlled music. In a 1957 lecture, Experimental Music, Cage described music as "a purposeless play" which is "an affirmation of life – not an attempt to bring order out of chaos nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply a way of waking up to the very life we're living.”
