Description:

First performed at the midpoint of the 20th century, John Cage's '4'33"', a composition conceived of without a single note, is among the most celebrated and ballyhooed cultural gestures in the history of modern music. This book explains '4'33"' as a unique moment in American culture and musical composition.
