    John Cage was a giant of American experimental music - composer, writer, and artist. He is most widely known for his 1952 composition "4'33", whose three movements continue to challenge the definition of music by being performed without playing a single note. In questioning fundamental tenets of Western music, Cage was often at the center of controversy, and is regarded as an important contributor to many facets of American culture.

    Lydbogen handler om Emma og Dexter, som i filmen er spillet af de kendte stjerner Anne Hathaway og Jim Sturgess, hvis liv vi følger én dag om året altid den 15. juli, fra de vågner op sammen efter deres dimissionsfest. "Jeg kan godt forestille mig dig som fyrreårig," sagde hun lidt ondskabsfuldt. "Faktisk kan jeg se det for mig lige nu" Han smilede uden at åbne øjnene. "Fortæl mig om det."
