Composed by John Cage in 1953, and played by Anton Lukoszevieze, there are several versions of this film, each lasting a minute. Despite being played from the same score, the films can appear to sound different – depending on what you see. Exhilarating and surprising, the score for 591/2 seconds for a String Player runs through the gamut of possible ways to produce a sound on a ‘cello.
