John Cage Speaks Out About Silence and Not Speaking

John Cage discusses music vs. noise, silence, sculpture musicale, etc.

"People expect listening to be more than listening so they speak of inner listening or the meaning of songs. When I say music, I'm talking about sound that doesn't mean anything. Something is just a sound. I love sounds just as they are. I don't need them to be something other than what they are. I don't want them to be psychological or a bucket or President or in love with another sound."

Kant said "Only two things don't have to mean anything. Music and laughter."
