Uh … is this the blog version of John Cage’s 4’33?
[The piano piece where the pianist just sits there for 4 minutes and 33 seconds with his hands in his lap.
There was a similar recording titled: “The Best of Marcel Marceau” available in the seventies lasting a bit longer than four minutes and thirty-three seconds.]
Somehow this seemed like the most profound post I have come up with in months…I also thought it was kind of funny.
Wow! I wish I had thought of it first. God bless this coming year in your life. I enjoy your posts.
The LP album featured twenty minutes of silence followed by a minute of thunderous applause on each side, and the cover misspelled “Marceau” as “Marceao” (intentionally?).
I bought it for a quarter back when Arkansas still had Magic Marts.
When my Aiwa combination radio/turntable was the latest word in electronics, I could set the sound output to “radio,” put the album on and go to sleep listening to music from the radio. After twenty-one minutes, the whole unit turned itself off.
