4& - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

4′33″ (pronounced "Four minutes, thirty-three seconds" or just "Four thirty-three") is a three-movement composition by American experimental composer John Cage (1912–1992). It was composed in 1952, for any instrument or combination of instruments, and the score instructs the performer(s) not to play their instrument(s) during the entire duration of the piece throughout the three movements. The piece purports to consist of the sounds of the environment that the listeners hear while it is performed, although it is commonly perceived as "four minutes thirty-three seconds of silence".

yeah the composer made his point
but it can be a little dangerous to understand
you start listening to any ambient sound as if it was carefully crafted and composed
then all sound, what we normally call noise, becomes music
