STATEMENT BY FAKE BLOOD
My 4'33" is made up of the static crackle, hum and pop on the intro grooves of 312 of my favourite records - that little moment of apparent nothingness when you drop the needle and wait for the music.
For me, there is more excitement and anticipation in those 2 seconds before each record starts, than there is in a thousand series of X Factor, Pop Idol, Britain's Got Talent, etc.
These are records made with passion, flair, fun, experimentation, freedom, uncertainty, hopes, pain, and fire. Records made by people, not committees.
These are not exercises in popularity or mechanical talent - the ability to hit the technically perfect note on a proven and saccharine pop standard - these are the sounds of people who had ideas and dreams, created music to express them, and meant it. Some of these artists you'd have heard of, and some never made it. But each record has a story attached, and those two seconds of silence and crackles to me is like opening the cover of a book.
Amazing! Shove it X-Factor.
I would rather listen to 40 years of this than 4 seconds of X factor junk! ;)
Lets have REAL music!
This song will be worth every purchase if it guarantees the following
1. That silence is rated higher than an X-factor song
2. That the Chart Show will have to broadcast silence (they have no excuse not to do so; it is not offensive in anyway shape or form)
3. That perhaps for once Christmas will mean we get 4'33' of peace for all.
