Laugh if you will.

 

 

Cage pointed out quite well IMO, the irrelevance of much music being written(and performed).

His book "silence" remains one of my favorite books of all time.

 

A good "performance" of this score ( :veryevil: ) can be realized by anyone, anywhere at most any time .

All you need to do is get yourself out of the way, pay attention to the present and find the "music" in the situation.

I realize this may sound silly but Cage really believed in this sort of thing.

As do I.

Hi,

I've never liked classical music because the only kid in my American public school who liked it wore glasses and spoke more than one language. Would you bespectacled, multilingual sorts tell me what's the best version of this? I heard it on the radio played by the composer himself and I was so disappointed by all the distracting hiss and coughing, so a modern version with excellent studio sound please.

Thanks and keep rockin'!

Well, Be forewarned, many people find it far less interesting than I do.
