“Cacophony” is a Great Word

Etymologically, it comes from Greek. “Kakos” and “Phonos” mean “Bad-Awful” and “Sound” respectively, and when they hold hands, they dance about to John Cage and Schoenberg music played by a Jr. High band.

I find that listening to Cage’s 4’33” while simultaneously listening to Bach’s cello suites is actually quite enjoyable.


Comment by Michael Riley

That is among Cage’s more listenable pieces. What do you do when that particular track ends and one of his Sonatas for Ruined Piano begins? Though some of them do sound like wind chimes when played on a vibraphone.
