John Cage's 4'33" released as an app

John Cage's 4'33" has been turned into a smartphone app. 4'33" allows users to create their own performance of Cage's famous composition, and tag it to their location, which is then tagged to a Google map for all users to access. The app is released by the John Cage Trust.

Already logged on the global map are "performances" from Iceland, Buenos Aires and Hawaii, among other places. More details here.
