john cage wrote a silent orchestral piece and he also said "one must be disinterested, accept that a sound is a sound and a man is a man" (119). i had him in mind when i put this piece together, along with some songs stuck in my head. i was interested in the idea that sounds are constantly occurring, absolutely all the time every single second, and at the same time sounds are happening in my head, in everyones heads, that we cannot hear. thoughts that pass, words that stick out, songs that get stuck, ESPECIALLY when one is as ~DISINTERESTED~ and ALOOF as john cage, with his cowboy ass name. i entered the Garage Band and pretty much played whatever i was thinking of at the moment, whether that meant a solid tune or an impulsive smashing of the keyboard.
