This chapter lists some moments in the making of the film One11, which has been created by John Cage. This chapter focuses on the idea that because the making of the film is written out beforehand in the composition, there will not be the conventional form of shooting and editing in which to make judgments, and so forth. Cage is of the belief that the purpose of music is to sober and quiet the mind, thus making it susceptible to divine influences. Till date One11 has had nearly a hundred public performances in ten countries and it has been broadcast in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria and was part of Rolywholyover. It was Cage's last complete work of a larger scale and of course, it is also considered as his artistic credo.
