John Cage : As Slow As Possible

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by BlackLake, Mar 7, 2008.


  1. I find this a little bizarre, but fun to discuss:

    In a nutshell. The performance of this song started in 2001, an will end in 2640. It began with a 2 year "rest".

    Think of the download time on that mp3 :D

    I'd like to hear your thoughts.

    Kinda cool. Buy why?
    And the pause at the beginning that lasted a year and a half is totally cheating.
     
  3. The original version for organ lasted 20 mins, so that "pause" was probably really only a few beats.
     
  4. This reminds me of a post in another John Cage related thread:

     
  5. wouldn't it be great if an altar boy accidentally fell on the organ an then they'd have to start all over again...

    John Cage is a strange strange man.

    His 4:33 seems stranger to me though.
