What do you mean ?  He's been silent for a long time

You write or play a note, and then where does the next one come from? The silence. But only if we're listening for it. Otherwise, our playing becomes a stream of run-on sentences that has no meaning. No subtlety. No breath.

So if I don't play at all that's music? (Granted, some folks would say it's preferable to my playing but still...) ;)

The music is in the combination of notes and silent parts man. Like yin and yang, good and evil, Cheech and Chong. 🙏☯️

That's because now he is de-composing...:badump:

But GH is right, there has to be a balance, or it is all just buzzing. For our ears and brains to really grasp melodic art, it needs to have time between notes, to allow us to process, to absorb...and digest, and react...listening is not the same as hearing...

I've heard a song called "The Sound of Silence." Silence itself is inaudible by definition because it's, y'know, silent.

You can watch all three movements in the video.

 

The idea here is that life is music and when this is performed the effect is the crowd is suddenly very aware of everything around them. Each time this piece is performed it is going to create a very unique experience.
