Celebration of experimental musician is held in Glasgow

Experimental composer John Cage was born 100 years ago.

To celebrate his birthday a concert of his music is being played as part of Glasgow's Merchant City festival.

His music defies convention and he used a variety of unusual sources to make sound including a cactus and a modified piano.
