Organ playing 639-year-long piece changes chord

(Thanks to Barry Nester, who says "as exciting as house music.")

Playing with your organ for a long time has consequences...

I think the Rolling Stones did an opening set before this piece got started.

How long is that in terms of asteroids?

This is stupid. Music is to be enjoyed. Other than the people who are dedicating some of their time to the project, is anyone enjoying this at all?

No Stairway.

But only because some of the choir members are reaching puberty.

I was going to make a John Cage joke before I saw that he is, in fact, the "composer" of this piece.

Also highly recommended for the music purist: John Cage's 4' 33".

They should try playing it at 78 speed.

Are they selling CDs of the music?

Has anyone thrown their underwear at the organ?

When it's over, will someone destroy the organ?

Have really old groupies stormed the organ?
