John Cage - 4'33"

Client: ISTD 

Type: Art Direction/Design

Year: 2012

John Cage's silent three-movement composition 4' 33" was intended to challenge our perceptions of what silence meant, Cage's idea was that any sounds constitute, or may constitute, music.

I looked at my own 4' 33" using sounds I heard whilst sitting in my back yard and mapped them and interpreted them graphically. The idea was that the viewer of my work could in fact create there own 4' 33" using the sounds I had given them layering them in different ways to create different effects.

John Cage's silent three-movement composition 4' 33" was intended to challenge our perceptions of what silence meant, Cage's idea was that any sounds constitute, or may constitute, music.

I wanted to graphically interpret the idea of sound so I looked at my own 4' 33" using sounds I heard whilst sitting in my back yard. The idea was that the sounds could be layered on top of each other to form different patterns whilst being housed in a record sleeve as a nod to the Cage's time period.
