John Cage and the "Activity of Sound"

John Cage discusses time and space and the "activity of sound".

Here is 4'33", Cage's most famous - or infamous, depending on your point of view - composition:

Cage: "The sound experience which I prefer to all others is the experience of silence."

By listening to that silence we are sometimes able to finally, and truly, hear.
