Another Thing A Long Time Coming

John Cage's 1985 organ piece As Long As Possible is being played exactly like that in a church in Germany--they're up to the sixth chord after 8 years!!! My kind of organ concert! As the composer wasn't explicit about how long was long, town officials decided to guestimate 639 years. So we won't hear the final chord in 2640. Maybe they should rename it The Tortoise's Fugue.
