    Probably the most moving performance of this piece of music I've ever... um... heard.

    John Cage's 4 Minutes, 33 Seconds, in 3 Movements.

    What the hell did I just watch? And why are people clapping? Was this filmed in some other dimension?

    There's a reason it's called "dope".

    The purpose of it’s not unique.
    Not to build masterpieces
    for a delectative elite
    but simply to wake to your life.

    My wife is an efficiency expert. She could get it down to 3 minutes 30 without losing anything important.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4′33″


    Whether he was a genius or a kook, he had some interesting ideas...


    There's a video on youtube of a performance of 4'33" that has YT's "this video contains 3rd party content and the audio has been disabled" and someone has put in a crappy midi track. :rofl:

    Ah, you can buy silence? Do you think Apple has sold even one copy of that? I'd really like to know.

    This thread can be summed up with 2 of the little smilie things :dunno::faint:
