Slideshow: Music's moment of silence

by

comment

Monument Circle resounded with silence on Thursday, April 7 when students and musicians gathered at 4:30 p.m. to perform a classic work of music.

The performance was conducted in the best flash-mob style but contained one, very important twist - the assembled musicians played 4’33 by American composer John Cage. The piece consists of four minutes and thirty three seconds of silence.

The ironic performance was orchestrated in an effort to draw attention to the importance of music in Indianapolis’ schools, as well as the city as a whole.
