Song of the day: JOHN CAGE – 4’33”

Here’s Cage’s main pianist collaborator David Tudor ‘playing’ the infamous “4’33″”.

I can never make up my mind whether this was/is an important artistic statement, or piss-taking on a grand scale. The cynic in me tends to the latter opinion, but I find that I do actually sit and listen more intently than I often would to other works – which presumably, behind all the arty philosophising, is the prime intention.
