‘People call it noise – but he calls it music'; that was how the Chicago Daily News described the work of the young composer John Cage in a review published in 1942. That noise, made using wooden sticks, water containers, tin cans, iron pipes, whistles and other percussion objects, soon gave way to silence, culminating in the famous score entitled 4'33'' (1952). This catalogue demonstrates Cage's impact on developments in all the artistic spheres of his time.

I’d really like to think that the artist could be just another kind of material in the picture, working in collaboration with all the other materials.
