Silence
    #2237417 - 01/12/04 05:31 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

As silence is the greatest teacher, let no one speak / type anything in this thread. Let this thread be a sanctuary for the weary; come here to drink in the nothingness. Drink deep and be refreshed. I have said too much already.

continues in telepathy mode: >> 4.33, originally written for piano (but can in principle be performed on any instrument either real or fictional), has the attractive property of being equally loud on any volume. Anyone get it? >>

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

That would be because Cage's "4:33" for piano was complete silence.... just him (or anyone performing it) sitting at the piano. Well, sort of.. The piece truly consists of whatever noise the audience makes, as well as whatever noise is audible from outside of the venue... and it is an ever changing piece... heh, yea, anyway... I was excited just to hear someone mention him here. if you like some of his other stuff then you should also check out Charles Ives.
