    Yep, it’s 50 yrs old!
    Actually, I just played in Rome LMY’s Composition 1960 # 9. I made my own version at the Dan Bau, but credited it properly.

    I didn’t know that La Monte Young read Pitchfork!

    My lawyers are about to sue the entire world for copyright infringement. You can’t just lower the key a half step and call it your own.

    Composition 1960 #7: http://www.njpartcenter.kr/root/2009_highway/img_eng/pic_3.jpg

    Kidding aside, it’s hard to believe that piece is 50 years old.

    Covered in Pitchfork too: http://pitchfork.com/features/columns/7825-the-out-door-5/

    And I would have sprinkled in ocassional measures of, say, 9/16, 5/2, 8/8 (with some tripled sprinkled in) and 17/4, all keeping the sustaining intact.

    LOL! I think the note is actually bent down a few cents…a friend of mine figured it out God bless him…

    Hilarious. Though I could imagine some dynamics and assume they have their circular breathing technique down.
