Songs Mashed Up With Composition 4’33”
I might be the only one that thinks these videos are enjoyable, but I still crack up every-time I watch one. Making them was a blast, I just sorted iTunes by song length then found my favorite songs that happened to be four and half minutes long, then I scoured Youtube for a few performances of John Cages “Composition 4’33” and mashed them together in Premiere. You can still hear some of the audience sounds and incidentals from the live performances. You can watch all 7 mashup videos here.
For anyone interested in learning more about Composition 4’33”, I highly recommend this episode of 20 Thousand Hertz. It’s my favorite explanation of the piece and has a powerful experiment at the end of it.
