Even though you got the piece from emusic, so without liner notes, a lot of the information is at Rob Haskin's site:


I'm pretty sure he wrote the notes that accompany the CD your MP3 comes from. Not only this article, but many others there as well, give a much better background on what Cage was attempting in these late works.

Experiencing this work via iPod is probably significantly different from the "live" experience. I heard this piece live in Toronto many years ago and found it haunting in its physicality and elastic sense of time.
