...but the implication is always that there's something to get ;-)

how long are you going to sit there for?

An interesting Cage fact:-
4'33 is not a silent piece of music.
The score plainly states that the performer should open doors and
windows at the venue in order to maximize the amount of background sound.
Absence of sound was not the intention, just absence of intentional sound.

...and even Cage would refer to it as "my silent piece", perhaps 
after the critics
had informed him .

So who "didn't get it" ?
