As Slow As Possible

A musical piece composed by John Cage which carries with it the unusual and vague instruction that it be played as slow as possible.

A performance is currently underway in St. Burchardi church in Halberstadt, Germany. It began in 2001 and, assuming the organ is maintained, is set to last until 2640, giving it a run-time of 639 years.
