    (September 5, 1912-August 12, 1992)
    Composed '4'33'',' 'Imaginary Landscapes,' 'Amores,' 'Daughters of the Lonesome Isle' and 'The Perilous Night'
    His composition 'four, thirty-three' consisted of four minutes and 33 seconds of silence.
    His sequel was called '0:00' which can be performed by anyone, anyway.
    Can everyone say 'Yoko Ono?'
    He came up with the concept in 1947, but did not write it until 1951 (it took four years to write nothing).
    Several recordings of 'four, thirty-three' have been made since its original recording.
    The correct way to perform it is to open the piano lid, sit still and then close it four minutes and thirty three seconds later, stand up and take a bow.
    His estate sued Mike Bat of Planet for putting a minute and a half of silence on his CD. He settled out of court (November 2002).
    He said there is no such thing as silence, one hears their nervous system and their blood circulating.
    All his musical compositions (silent or otherwise) has influenced younger musicians.
    Although 'four, thirty-three' is his most famous composition, he has produced many non-silent musical compositions.
    He is often described as visionary, influential, extreme and controversial.
    He was the first composer of Electronic music (Imaginary Landscapes).
