Music and Noise

One VIth-form group (Elliot and Jan) bravely claimed that all sound (and silence) was musical, so had trouble with their second piece; they almost succeeded by distracting the audience so they weren’t expecting any sound, and then, as nonchalantly as possible, making a noise.

Mr Pepper threatens to offer a follow-up on his favoured “Sonic Art” style of music.

Enjoy the two pieces by John Cage on YouTube: “4’ 33”” and the “Water Walk”, as shown on American TV.
