Time signature

Go to a Sunn O))) gig and you're not likely to hear many chord changes. But that's nothing compared to the experience of visiting the St Burchardi Church in Halberstadt, Germany, where John Cage's composition 'As Slow As Possible' has been playing since 2001 and where an audience recently witnessed the first chord change since 2013. I'm just envious of them being able to enjoy live music, to be honest.

The piece is due to finish in 2640, by which time My Bloody Valentine might have released another album.
