Technology is a part of our lives and is on the verge of assuming an independent entity. By making art, I generate a balance between acquired aesthetics and newly discovered meaning thereby transforming what could have initially been interpreted as irrational to a newly realized aesthetic. For example, Russolo hypothesized that new music could be created by the new sounds that were being generated by new machines that were being invented during the First World War. John Cage addressed the technological impact on sound as ‘The tension between the hushed, primordial wilderness and the noisy technology we bring to “improve”’, and it occupied Cage from the very beginning. John Cage wanted to fuse the ‘natural sublime’ with the ‘technological sublime’. ‘Cage called for the use of “technological means” requiring “the close anonymous collaboration of a number of workers,” leading “not to self-knowledge … [but] to selflessness.’ Cage sought to unify the creative ego and the machine, and by deconstructing the machine and being humble in reality by acknowledging the power of simplicity in the everyday, arrived at not only new configurations but also novel sources of inspiration. As Cage was highly versed with Zen philosophy, he continued reliance on the I Ching or other chance operations and by doing so ‘engaged with a dialectic with the outside world that encouraged new developments. The ego of choice was married to the selflessness of chance, and the authorship of the resulting gesture could be seen as collaborative, multiple and open to question.’ When Cage stated that “Everything you open yourself to is your silence”, he was implying that the silence, or the subliminal realm in which it exists is the reason why one is doing what he or she is doing and the choices that they make, on the condition that they are searching to find themselves or meaning, will reveal their history. Hence, ironically, as we step forward in the future, the more will be revealed about our history, as our picture of it is incomplete. The noises that are inaudible to the human ear, exist.
