What silence taught John Cage: The story of 4'33"

Essay from programme notes for an exhibition of Cage's work in Barcelona, by James Pritchett.

Critiques 4'33", examines the development of silence in Cage's work along with chance composition, with some very illuminating discussion of Cage's use of duration as a key to his work and the spiritual/philosophical significance of his music as well.
