silence as redemption, a mediocre melody

Composer/sound artist Andreas Bick wrote about the recent commercial use of John Cage's 4'33, The Royal British Legion's 2 Minute Silence and Dave Hilliard's Cage Against The Machine. "In fact, there are two opposing re-contextualisations competing with each other, both using the charity aspect as a key argument." 4'33 of redemption.

I got a mediocre melody in my brain and it didn't leave. So I jotted it down in order to forget. Using functional harmony is all about postponing the end.
