Aleatory Album

I appreciate random.

John Cage was a fan of random.

You may have heard of his piece “4′ 33”.

You can listen to that piece anytime…

Just stop: and listen for four minutes and thirty-three seconds.

In Cage’s honor, I asked the God of the Random Number Generator to give me four numbers.

“4878” was the reply.

Here’s what 4878 got us.
