    The amazing thing is that he wrote it in 1952 - and 52 years later people still dont get it -
    Hes one of the most avant garde composers of our time running along with the fluxus artists at the time (yoko ono, nam june paik, laurie anderson etc look up fluxus art its funny)

    Anyway heres the your sound file (the other link was also silent)
    Cage Zip file 3mb

    John Cage&#39;s 4&#39;33"
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "I have nothing to say / and I am saying it / and that is poetry / as I needed it" --John Cage
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    John Cage&#39;s most famous musical composition is called 4&#39;33".
    It consists of the pianist going to the piano, and not hitting any keys for four minutes and thirty-three seconds. (He uses a stopwatch to time this.) In other words, the entire piece consists of silences -- silences of different lengths, they say.


    On the one hand, as a musical piece, 4&#39;33" leaves almost no room for the pianist&#39;s interpretation: as long as he watches the stopwatch, he can&#39;t play it too fast or too slow; he can&#39;t hit the wrong keys; he can&#39;t play it too loud, or too melodramatically, or too subduedly.

    On the other hand, what you hear when you listen to 4&#39;33" is more a matter of chance than with any other piece of music -- nothing of what you hear is anything the composer wrote.

    Can I Download This Music Anywhere?
    Yes as long as it is 4.33
