4’33”- your silent song

August 7, 2019

The song 4’33” by John Cage has no instruments. No lyrics. In fact, no sound at all. It’s 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence. And that’s the point.

If you take your friends to the beach and play them 4’33” they will hear the crash of waves and the sound of the wind. If you play it in the park you will hear children shouting and dogs barking, if you play it in your room you will hear your heart beat and the sound of cars outside.

Listen to 4’33” . Set a timer for 4 minutes 33 seconds and write down eveeything you hear. Write your silent song.
