I just looked at my watch for 4 min 33 sec. I did not hear John Cage
music.     (03)

Two measures of rest in a symphony is an architectonic feature of the
symphonic movement. Case in point: Mahler, in the first movement of the
second symphony has a moment where no one plays. The composer's intent
was to let the hall play. There is a considerable reverberation apparent
(and for what it is worth, he had a certain hall in mind in Vienna. In
Wichita, the hall reverberates a quarter tone low).    (04)
