Here’s a trivia question for you, how long is the longest song ever?

If you’re thinking it’s probably some obscure 30 minute Pink Floyd effort, you’re way off.

It’s actually As Slow As Possible by John Cage. It’ll be finished in the 27th Century and at the weekend it changed chord.

This change happened under the direction of Prof. Rainer Neugebauer. He is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the John Cage Organ Foundation in Halberstadt, Germany
