John Cage: 4'33" + Peter Greenaway Documentary (and a bit more)
First up, John Cage's most famous piece ever. To really get the proper effect, you should turn off the sound, because the idea is to anticipate organized sound, but to only hear what is actually around you. Whereas what you hear here is the sound recorded at this performance. Technically, 4'33" is always a live piece; a recording even of the ambient sound is not the proper effect.(the piece is NOT meant as a joke, despite what some may think)
