organ2/ASLSP

The John Cage Organ Project approaches the end of the third year of a John Cage's "organ2/ASLSP" (As SLow aS Possible) with the sounding of two Es.

A relative rush of activity broke out here this week in the world's slowest and longest-lasting concert as two new notes sounded in a piece of music that is taking a total 639 years to perform in its entirety. The abandoned Buchardi church in Halberstadt, eastern Germany, is the venue for a mind-boggling 639-year-long performance of a piece of music by U..S experimental composer John Cage (1912-1992).
