It has been recorded that souvenir for organ has been renamed Souvenir for silent non-existent instrumental ensemble and arctic nights in order to recreate the Pianophilia discussion into its modern restatement of originality

Yes indeed - Frank Zappa.

This is what it sounds like (sorry about the rather low bit
rate and the inappropriate choice of thread for the file).

Well, this is really funny. I was thinking that the 4'33" has only pauses and not movements on it. As a compositional idea it is genial, despite the fact that I really don't like Cage's music. He invented first, he deserves the applause.
I listened this Souvenir for organ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71wNx0-nMX8, it seems like a "real" music - in my opinion it is terrible. One of my friends needs it, but he already commanded from a sheet music shop for a few euros.

No, it's not. There are °C (Celsius) °F (Fahrenheit) and K (Kelvin). By definition, O°C is 273.15K.
