The term Number Pieces refers to a body of late compositions John Cage. Each piece is named after the number of performers involved: for instance, Seven is a piece for seven performers. The vast majority of these works were composed using Cage's time bracket technique: the score consists of short fragments (frequently just one note, with or without dynamics) and indications, in minutes and seconds, of when the fragment should start and when it should end. All of the Number Pieces were composed during the last six years of Cage's life, 19871992.
