591/2 Seconds for a String Player (versions 1-3)

Composed by John Cage in 1953, 59 1/2 seconds for a String Player runs through the gamut of possible ways to produce a sound on a 'cello.

With music composed by John Cage in 1953, and played by Anton Lukoszevieze, there are several versions of this film, each lasting a minute. Despite being played from the same score, the films can appear to sound different - depending on what you see. Exhilarating and surprising, the score for 591/2 seconds for a String Player runs through the gamut of possible ways to produce a sound on a 'cello.

'Cellist: Anton Lukoszevieze
Camera: Belinda Parsons
