Yes. Cage has been ripped off.
Not sure how much money Samir has made so far – but back in 1952, John Cage wrote this very piece of music … in fact Frank Zappa actually recorded it and included it on A Chance Operation: The John Cage Tribute
Yes I understand that Samir cleverly called the track “Aaaaa Very Good Son”g and it is absolute silence – as distinct to ‘the sounds of the environment that the listeners hear while it is being performed’ – but given the litigious nature of Frank’s widow that I have pointed out before … and that Apple do seem to object to rip offs in their stores – I am not sure how he gets away with it.
I much prefer the Zappa version. More nuanced, better use of white space.
