OK, you really do have to watch the video of Cage Against the Machine recording 4’33”. Its good-natured absurdity would have made a joyful climax to my book, had I not already finished it.

    Ha! Of course, they couldn’t do it without the guitarist’s amp making a racket. The 50hz drone version of 4’33″…LaMonte meets JC.

    A joyful climax, indeed it is. And am amused by David First’s comment: LaMonte meets JC. Of course, JC did demonstrate, didn’t he, that there is no such thing as silence.
