I heard this on a classical music radio station and fell in love with it, now I use it to put my daughter to sleep. I love it!

Pierre Boulez said that Cage was not a composer, but an inventor. And I say he was an inventor of perceiving sound in new ways. Maybe an inventor and a philosopher. To me, this is like slowed down Debussy. Peaceful.

Actually, it was Schoenberg that said that.

@onegathers You’d think I would know this, given that I read it in Style & Idea many years ago. Thanks for the correction.


Actually it was his tutor Schoenberg. But you are spot on everywhere else, our Jeff.


It's raining. I was walking through the streets and this music was everywhere, in the puddles on the roads, in the sky covered with thick lead clouds, in the branches of naked trees, in the cold wind blowing in my face. I was wondering whether it was me tired of all the routine and monotonous stream of the days, or it was the nature trying to focus my gaze on all the simple beauties I was ignoring though it always appeared right in front of my eyes. In fact, I just wanted to sit somewhere and let the music merge me with it and turn to a tiny peace of an immortal beauty.
