Ummm, isn't that the same one as for the longest piece on the organ?

Well, I don't know about this work... I don't deny John Cage or the organizers of the Halberstadt performance their freedom of expression, but I still want to be able to use mine in turn, and express doubts on whether this qualifies as a work of art.

To me, "art" should at least remain the root of the word "artisan", i.e. somebody who possesses a certain craftsmanship (which is not to say that any work made by a craftsman qualifies as art!).

I'm not saying that Cage didn't possess craftsmanship, but has he put any of it into this work (or into 4'33", for that matter) ?
