Silence Between Stations

…A silent 60-second track on the album of his latest classical chart-topping protégés, the Planets, has enraged representatives of the avant-garde, experimentalist composer John Cage, who died in 1992. The silence on his group’s album clearly sounds uncannily like 4’33”, the silence composed by Cage in his prime…. As my mother said when I told her, ‘which part of the silence are they claiming you nicked?‘.’

Thanks Adam.
