In 2012 the world celebrates the centenary of John Cage’s birth and the 60th anniversary of the premiere of the composer’s “silent piece” 4’33” (“four minutes, thirty-three seconds”). This composition in three movements without intentional sounds is Cage’s most prominent work today. The exhibition Sounds Like Silence, organized by Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV), shows how artists continue to refer to 4’33”, whether explicitly or by addressing wider issues such as silence and sound ecology.
