Music lovers gathered last week at the medieval church of Sankt-Burchardi, in the German city of Halberstadt, to hear a chord change of the longest piece of music in history, which runs for 639 years.
The performance of 'Organ / ASLSP', created in 1987 by the American composer John Cage, began on September 5, 2001 by an organ, built especially for the event, and will end in the year 2640.
The score consists of 8 pages, to be played very slowly on piano or organ. The previous chord change occurred in 2013, while the next one is scheduled for February 5, 2022.
