Matthieu Saladin - 4'33"/0'00"

4’33’’ is a John Cage’s notorious composition, conceived in 1952 and first played by David Tudor on piano in the same year.
It was released on vinyl in 1974 by Cramps Records.
“Four, thirty-three” consists of four minutes and thirty-three seconds of silence…
During this time the performer plays nothing.
The purpose is let the listeners hear the sounds of environments where the piece is performed.
Cage said: "There is no such thing as silence. Something is always happening that makes a sound."
Matthieu Saladin now elaborates on this piece and, amplifying it at the maximum, unveils an amazing cascade of noise, kept hidden so far, unimaginable to think it could be taken out from such a composition.
Silence doesn’t exist, really. Play it loud, as usual.
