I initially thought this was going to be something like the infinite money+piano thing. Play all possible combinations of notes on the organ in every possible permutation.

Which immediately made me think, "Wouldn't this eventually play every song ever written? Wouldn't it also be a wonderful timeclock/pacer to see which came first: the expiration of a song's copyright or the notes played by the 'Infinite Monkey Music Experiment' over 600 years?"

Didn't someone relatively famous write a 1000-yr piece with Supercollider a while back?

lamer: I read and wrote a paper on Cage’s book, Silence, back in the 60’s when I was at university. It opened up new worlds for me—like Zen and Rauschenberg’s white paintings. These artists invite you to abandon your preconceptions and really listen—really observe the world in a fresh way. The compositions are like a koan, to jam your radar and awaken your spirit. If you continually feed yourself the predictable you lose the essence of life.

OMFG. For God's sake, can't artists do *anything* without appealing to some sort of extreme? (Of course, making something extremely beautiful, well, that's right out. So fucking reactionary.) Congrats cholo, you've written the longest song ever. Which turns out to be a normal fucking composition, with each note drawn out.

Of course, he probably means it sarcastically, to get reactionaries like me up in arms. Or maybe he is laughing and waiting to see if this idiot art criticism crew will give it props. Or maybe both.

I'm disappointed I even wasted time responding to this. <sigh/>
