“I was in the audience of the Los Angeles Philharmonic playing John Cage’s ‘Renga’ and ‘Apartment House 1776’. At some point someone starts booing in the middle of the performance, showing his disapproval for the presented music. And then the man sitting behind him starts yelling at him to get him to shut up. Then not before long there are people in the aisles of the LA Philharmonic concert hitting each other with their fists. I’ve never seen that before! I thought, ‘Hooray for Cage; to have people fight so much about what the definition of a piece of music is shows that they care so much and will fight about it.’,” laughs David Lang in an interview with Limelight.Meeting with Philip Glass at Sacrum Profanum Festival

One of the questions we are most frequently asked is how we came up with the name Alarm Will Sound. The answer, like most decisions in the group, is: after lots and lots and lots of discussion. I spied the sign on an emergency exit while working out at the gym. "How about Alarm Will Sound?" and it was added to a long list of other possibilities that were endlessly debated and voted on. Alarm Will Sound prevailed – recalls Gavin Chuck.
