>Dear Spectre,
>
>in 2012 the world celebrates the centenary of 
>John Cage's birth and the 60th anniversary of 
>the premiere of the composer's "silent piece" 
>4'33'' (four minutes, thirty-three seconds). 
>This composition in three movements without 
>intentional sounds is Cage's most prominent work 
>today. The new exhibition SOUNDS LIKE SILENCE, 
>organized by HMKV, shows how artists continue to 
>refer to 4'33'', whether explicitly or by 
>addressing wider issues such as silence and 
>sound ecology. On display are more than 40 
>positions by international artists.
>
>The exhibition SOUNDS LIKE SILENCE - curated by 
>Inke Arns and Dieter Daniels - is presented from 
>25 August, 2012 until 6 January, 2013 at 
>Dortmunder U - Centre for Art and Creativity on 
>four floors: on the 3rd and the 6th floor (the 
>space for temporary exhibitions of the 
>Dortmunder U) as well as at the Lautsprecher 
>("loudspeaker") space on the 4th floor, which 
>will feature sound art pieces, and at the RWE 
>Forum | U Cinema which will be used for 
>performances, artist talks and film screenings.
>
>SOUNDS LIKE SILENCE features works by, among 
>others: Manon de Boer (NL/BE), John Cage (US), 
>Martin Creed (UK), Merce Cunningham (US), Guy

>comprehensive publication SOUNDS LIKE SILENCE 
>(ed. by Dieter Daniels and Inke Arns, Leipzig: 
>Spector Books, 2012), which opens a scientific 
>perspective on 4'33" and is an essential part of 
>the whole project. The publication includes new 
>theoretical essays with different interpretive 
>approaches as well as a catalogue section. 
>Furthermore, the publication documents notations 
>and variations by John Cage, versions, 
>derivations and continuations of the "silent 
>piece" from 1962 to 1992.
