Three objects each that relate to ourselves.

      Dropping different objects into a range of different cylinders and getting a range of sounds

      We studied John Cage 4 min 33 in class

      This performance piece focused on the diegetic sounds generated by the audience.Cages composition is not the focus of the performance but used as a tool to get the audience to tune into sounds they would otherwise ignore.

      E.g. Stray cough or scuffing of feet.

      “Wherever we are, what we hear is mostly noise. When we ignore it, it disturbed us. When we listen to it, we find it fascinating”
      John Cage. “The future of music”

      I didn’t really understand what John cage was trying to show at first until I did a little bit or research about why he did this. I then started to understand more about the idea of this piece and why he did it.

      study work
