    I already knew who John Cage was and his works are hilarious, I really recommend watching his "Water Walk" performance. He said the reason why the name of the performance "Water Walk" was because there was water and he was walking around. Honestly that guy is four parallel universes ahead of us lol

  • Dallas Bolin
    Dallas Bolin18 ditë më parë

    As an organist, I was pretty thrilled to see this piece come up in my recommendations. I already knew about it but still. However. It's not a SONG. Lol gosh this is such a common thing that gets under classical musicians' skin. It's a piece. A song is always a piece of music that has words to be sung. Anything else (at least and especially in "classical" settings) is a piece. 4'33" is also, therefore, a piece. I know this sounds nitpicky but I mean. >.> The presenter kind of gives himself away when he says "I don't know music stuff." If that's the case, I kind of feel justified in thus nitpicking; you should have done some more research or gotten your "musician friend" to weigh in a little more, maybe. But really that's not what bothered me. I've been playing "songs" for my family and friends my whole life because people in the mainstream world will never call anything a piece because they only regularly interact with songs on the radio and that's fine. But man. I know you have to find jokes. I know sarcasm is a large part of your shtick. But seriously? Every freaking organist in the world has heard something about body parts. It's so unoriginal and unimaginative. Also, that whole little bit leading up to the organs joke was pretty disparaging of organs and organists and classical music in general. I know we're not the mainstream driving force behind music anymore but that's literally no reason to just automatically shit on us as being boring eccentrics every single time we come up in these kinds of videos. There's such a wider spin that could have been made of this entire video. The 639 year long piece of music involves some whacky engineering, a lot of counterculture within the classical music community, and - Who am I kidding, no one's still reading this lmao
