TheFoe | 1948 comments Laibach - 4'33, is this a serious nomination Tim?? A recording of somebody playing chess. No doubt the arty type will vote in their droves but no direspect if this counts as music then god help us!

For sure. John Cage's piece is a serious composition. People say it's just a joke 'silent piece' but it's about the ambient sounds that go on during the performance, which most of us just shut our ears to in everyday life. In this instance it's mostly the crackles from the record.

theDuke | 5605 comments Hello one and all.

The gongs of precious metals awards are as follows:

1st place: The first song at the top of the list, is also the top song in this round; 'Letter to Madeline' by Ian Noe, scord a not too shabby 16 points, so the gold round shiny thing goes to Rob.

2nd place: with 1 point fewer, 'Bells Of War' by Redscale, takes the middle ground, so your truely adds a silver disk to his collection.

3rd place: And rounding things up, with a score of 10 points, it's the humourous 'Valhallelujah' by Nanowar of Steel, meaning Sera picks up the Bronze coin.

Well done to the winners......but hold on there folkies..cos there's wooden stirry thingy to give out too, this week........

Now then.....i guess everyone will have their opinion of what constitutes as actual music, but personally i've never rated John Cage's acclaimed silent masterpiece, and i don't really understand this one either! It just isn't music to my limited imagination.

Also.....why was the only woman in the vid completely nekkid?! Wossat about?! Plus...at 7 minutes long, all set and ready..but not one chess piece moved??!

But credit where credit is due....it was certainly different.

Nice try Mr Tim, but null point..so you get a nice crisp wooden one sah! :)

Tim Franklin | 8438 comments In my mind, the points awarded to 4' 33" were all silent too. 😋😎

Tech XXIII  | 6377 comments is silent another word for absent?

tim, if i'd had time to vote, i'd have given it max. points.........nah, lying, ye'd still've hud the timber spurtle! :)
