    Create a personal response to John Cage’s composition Four Minutes and Thirty-Three Seconds.


    My concept was to go to public places where people had to wait in groups and were usually silent. I created my own performance of 4'33" at the underground Haymarket Metro station, in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne’s city center, and expressed it typographically on a time, pitch and volume based scale. The final result was over three metres long.
