As Slow as Possible: a Musical Piece to be Played Over 639 Years!

In 1987, John Cage composed a musical piece titled Organ²/ASLSP (As SLow aS Possible), with instruction that it should be played as slow as possible.

But how slow? In a 1997 conference for organists, musicians and philosophers came up with a project to play Cage's piece over 639 years! They got started in 2001, and although that was quite a while ago, you haven't missed much: they've only played 5 notes so far!
