Mapping the Sound of Silence
The Museum of Modern Art, New York has created a sound map to accompany an exhibition celebrating John Cage’s 4’33” ( commonly known as Cage's 'silent' piece). The museum recently acquired the score for 4'33" and the exhibition will examine both the score and Cage's influence on 20th Century artists.
MoMa's Share Your Silence map is a sound map of user contributed recordings of 'silence' around the world. If you want to hear how silence sounds in different locations around the world you can simply click on the map markers and listen to the submitted recordings directly from the map.
