Four4 uses flexible time-brackets. The instruments are not specified. The performers have to choose their instruments, attaching a number to each of them. In the parts Cage gives a number in each of the time-brackets, referring to these instruments. The beginnings and endings of the sounds are sometimes widely seperated, at times covering more than 5 minutes. Every time-brackets features only one sound. The four performers have 22, 16, 10 and 15 time-brackets each. The composition was written especially to be recorded on a CD, hence its duration, then the maximum duration of a CD.
