What is silence
I would define silence as the end of questioning. A place and time where things just ARE. Where there's sound but not the kind that has to raise its decibel-head to get heard. In this arena of silence there are different frequencies, different timbres, different rhythms, different tonal qualities. Each according to its need of being. This is what I define as non-competitive sound. And this silence cannot be loud or intrusive or nauseating or distancing or uncomfortable because the perceiver of this silence is NOT hearing what he wants to hear but what IS.
