Appropriate quote!

I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.”
–John Cage,
American composer

One thought on “Appropriate quote!

  1. Great Quote!!! John Cage is most infamous for a composition style called "Chance music", which basically left all interpretation for his music up to the performer.

    Also notoriously infamous for the piece "4:33" which he sat down on a piano bench an from the time he sat to the time he stood up (time for 4 minutes and 33 seconds), the music was any sound that occured in the auditorium (i.e. coughs, dropping pens, shuffling feet)

    Oh… and he used to sell insurance!!!!
