We’ve been having many conversations about modern classical music lately. I, of course, keep listening to Philip Glass while Jason really only likes one particular concerto by Krzysztof Penderecki.

Eventually, as all converstaions of this ilk will do, the conversation turned to John Cage and his 4′33″, which Damon described being performed live once by his piano teacher. Apparently, she merely sat in front of the piano. My understanding of the piece is that it should in fact create more tension in the audience by seeming to be about to perform. Specifically, I thought that she should have put her hands above the keyboard. So, how do I state this difference of opinion?

She was playing it wrong!

Well, we thought it was funny.
