John Cage Interview

John Cage was a 20th century composer. This article is about a piece he composed called 4’33”, and how it was one of his toughest pieces to compose. The piece is 4 and half minutes of pure silence. Most people would watch the composer on stage thinking that he will eventually interact with the keyboard but never does. Cage just simply wanted his audience to listen to the piece, and this caused him to become interested in in the physical and cognitive relationship between performers and audience members. I don’t like this piece because it is 4 minutes and 33 seconds of pure silence and people like it.
