That bass sounds like ass. The video is an experiment I have been been working on. That video was my first attempt.

Like I said; this video was my first attempt. I originally made the video to show my friend what I have in mind for a project I have in mind. My friend and I have been interested in do a video/ music project for a while. I can assure you the videos we will do together will have much more volume. My friend has a home recording studio.

Hi Steve.
As a grateful dead fan I also appreciate John Cage and the musical genre he worked with.

I can assure you, though, his music was not as random as is appears at first glance. He is very similar to Spike Jones in the fact that the music seems random and chaotic, but is indeed very "prepared" music. This requires even more practice and discipline than jazz, due to it's odd time signatue and atonal qualities.

I respectfully suggest hat you first master the basics before attempting the more demanding genres.

" in the late 1940s, Cage came to the idea of chance-controlled music, which he started composing in 1951. The I Ching, an ancient Chinese classic text on changing events, became Cage's standard composition tool for the rest of his life."

I wouldn't be so sure about your statement on the randomness of Cage's music. If wikipedia can be believed, his music actually was random. And probably just about unlistenable. Honestly, who's listened to 4'33 more than once?

Please note that it was chance based composed and not chance based performed...

I have listened to much of his music way more than once. I guess only mad dogs and merry pranksters actually enjoy that sort of thing, so I understand your statement, though.

I was more influenced William Burroughs then John Cage.
