New note at 'longest concert'


Another note from a piece by a US composer has been played in what has been called the world's slowest and longest concert.

The church organ in the German town of Halberstadt played the next - seventh - chord of John Cage's As Slow As Possible work.

The performance began in 2001 and is scheduled to last a total of 639 years.

Steven Rosenberg reports.
