John Cage "As Slow As Possible" - 7th Note Reached

On the church organ in Halberstadt, Germany, a performance of John Cage’s As Slow As Possible has been underway since 2001. BBC’s Steven Rosenberg was there for a rare chord change. He probably won’t make the conclusion of the work, in 2640 A.D. (Thanks to Jacque Harper of the Chicago Bass Ensemble for the tip!)
