A full orchestra plays John Cage's 4'33"  NOV 19 2010

Here's video of a full orchestral performance of John Cage's famous 4'33" composition, in which none of the performers plays his or her instrument; it's four minutes and thirty-three seconds of ambient noise.

You're not going to think it's worth it, but watch the whole performance. (thx, liz)
