how would that discredit it as music.
By itself, it might not, as written composition isn't necessary to make music (f.ex. free improvisation), but when your composition is an actual lack of sound, then how have you created music?

It still holds bearing as a composition, just as one long note with no dynamics would be a composition. A simple one yah, but still a composition

By itself, it might not, as written composition isn't necessary to make music (f.ex. free improvisation), but when your composition is an actual lack of sound, then how have you created music?

Okay by that logic by having no silence whatsoever is also not music, seeing as without one or the other it cannot be classified as music.

Nice.
I've made a track entirely out of samples of the sound of a needle on an empty vinyl once.
Those kinds of limitatons are fun.

Go trot through my 1300 arguments explaining why in this thread: http://www.musicbanter.com/general-m...-what-not.html. The very basic answer is that the piece still relies on sound. It's a common misconception to refer to it as a "silent piece" since while the instruments are silent, the piece is not silent at all. Due to its sonic elements and the fact that it's intended to be music, then it is music. It has a value as performance art though, but the overarching field is music.

Impossible for you. I don't get some of your jokes sometimes, I don't give you an earful about it. We have different senses of humour. It happens. Get over it.

I think that using actual percussion for your percussion is totally overrated. You can use ASMR videos, hail, rain, rocks, things being dropped, doors being slammed, etc etc.

I'd think it was a pretty **** composition, but since changing the composition (making it a different note) would actually change the result, then at least the composition would have a point. No matter what you write on those pages, 4'33 is going to sound exactly the same. So, why even compose it, other than to be able to say you did (which makes the composition an intellectual, rather than a musical endeavor)?
