JOHN CAGE + PHONE LINES + BRAIN WAVES = VARIATIONS VII

I am just starting to realize my desire for sampling every sound ever is basically just because of John Cage. The John Cage gene. Performance complete w/ smiling old lady. UPDATE/SPOILER: Smiling old lady also frowns and looks terrified.

This is where the real hippies were. Suck it, Beatles.

"We needed lot of wire for za sound."

UPDATE:

Is Variations VII a nonconceptualist piece? Or is it "conceptual" because it's a performance?

UPDATE AGAIN:

Does my brain make rush hour traffic sound like a string section??!!

UPDATE:

John Cage looks like a superintendent of sound who has completely relinquished all authority over sound. VERDICT: NONCONCEPTUAL.
