That is no error you see: those are all rests.
I had to add a note at the end (invisible) so that MuseScore would render the whole thing.

This is my composition, inspired by 4'33" by John Cage.
A good article about 4'33" can be found at

Whereas 4'33" simply had empty bars, 4.3833' has a more complex structure with time signature changes, tempo shifts, and a key signature.

4'33" and 4.3833' are both examples of chance music.
In chance music, the music is not produced by the performer, but by the sounds around you.
Each time you listen to it will be different.


EDIT: Originally, I intended the title to be 4'33" in minutes. Due to some calculation error, I got 4.3833 instead of 4.55.
Oh well. Think of it like the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy: "A Trilogy in Five (Six) Parts"
