John Cage's Unique Silent Comp '4'33

John Cage's Unique Silent Comp. '4'33"' Gets Auto-Tuned Rendition >>

There is a never-ending interest in John Cage and his silent composition "4'33"." So while the composer may have coined an iPhone app for the piece, thus a new "Auto-Tuned" version of the composition has surfaced on the Internet. Via Disinformation, the new piece has an Auto-Tuned surface, taking the environmental sounds essential to the piece's performance to a whole new level. Aphex Twin probably would have a ball with the idea. As "C-lite" has previously said, the "silence" of the piece does not contend with the rests and caesuras from the likes of Bach, Beethoven or even the Wandelweiser Group.
