••• John Cage – Organ²/ASLSP (As SLow aS Possible)

Originally composed in 1987 for the organ, Cage's piece holds the title of longest-lasting musical performance to date.  Cage opted to leave out any specific details as to how slow exactly the piece should be played, other than "as slow as possible"

The current organ performance of the piece at St. Burchardi church in Halberstadt, Germany. It began on September 5, 2001 and is scheduled to last 639 years; finally ending in the year 2640.

The chords change about every year or so, and here is a New York Times article about one such chord change in 2006. "The performance is in keeping with Cage's efforts to explore the
boundaries of performance and how music exists in time and space."
