Organ²/ASLSP (As SLow aS Possible) – John Cage

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7490776.stm

The church organ in Halberstadt will play the next – sixth – chord of John Cage’s As Slow As Possible work.
The performance began in 2000 and is scheduled to last a total of 639 years.
The idea of taking so long to get through the composer’s piece is to find a musical way of countering the hustle and bustle of modern life.

– BBC 2008
