the sound of silence

[audio:silence.mp3]

We all know a song of this name, and if you are old enough (like me), it probably brings up certain memories. But the music you hear when clicking the player sounds different – although it is kind of an extension over the original intro…

Clearly we cannot reproduce silence as musicians, but silence may become an essential part of our music. And sometimes it’s the most powerful part.

guitar & gear: Fender Jaguar (using a capo for the mandolin effect), Gibson EB3 Bass, Vox AC 15, Tube Reverb, Susannes voice (phased)

    Thank you!
    I don’t know how it looks on your screen, but there are some trees and undergrowth to be seen in one corner of the picture. It is, in fact, a real photo.
