One thing I could sure use before finishing this book on 4’33” is an obscure recording on the Korm Plastics label called 45’18” (Forty-five Minutes, Eighteen Seconds). It’s a CD of nine versions of 4’33” by Thurston Moore, Keith Rowe, the Deep Listening Band, Voice Crack, and others. It doesn’t seem to be available anywhere at the moment. Is there someone out there who could dupe me a copy, with program info? I’d gladly pay a reasonable price for a CDR. (I mean, I am paying basically for silence, but it’s really important silence.)
One of the calmest afternoons I’ve had lately was spent doing a comparison of the various recordings of 4’33”.
