World’s Longest Concert

“You’d be praying for intermission if you attended even just a fraction of the world’s longest concert. Now in it’s 10th year, ‘Organ²/ASLSP (As SLow aS Possible),’ by avant-garde composer John Cage, is just getting started. The concert began in 2001 at the former St. Burchard church in Halberstadt, Germany, and is scheduled to conclude in 2640, for a duration of 639 years. Though Cage did not specify a duration for his piece, the length was chosen because the start date for the performance is 639 years after Nicolaus Faber built the first church organ. Other performances of the piece have lasted between 29 and 70 minutes.” w/ photo
