The 4′33″ Museum is a box set collection of field recordings I've been making in museums around the world for more than a decade. Each recording is four minutes and thirty three seconds long, as a nod to John Cage's famous 'silent piece' entitled 4′33″, since museums have a reputation for being silent – but if these recordings are anything to go by, they are most certainly anything but.

The STANDARD EDITION is a digital album in four volumes with 50 tracks – nearly four hours of recordings, and comes with a PDF digital booklet.

The COLLECTOR'S EDITION includes the digital album of 50 recordings plus a 74 page full-colour book with liner notes, photographs, and an essay about collecting. Part guide book, part memoir, the book enhances the listening experience by providing further information about the recording sessions and my experiences at each of the museums in the collection.
