In 1952, John Cage created his “silent piece”, 4’33’’ - a radical composition that demonstrated Cage's belief that sounds are music. Join Dallas Taylor, host of Twenty Thousand Hertz for the first-ever live performance of the show, which asks whether 4’33’’ is really “silent”... and perhaps develop a new relationship to silence yourself.

Twenty Thousand Hertz is the highest frequency the human ear can hear, it is also a podcast revealing stories behind the world's most recognizable and interesting sounds. In this live performance, we explore the history of 4’33’’, a piece musicians still talk about today.
