“There are many forms of silence,” declared Luigi Nono (1924-1990). These chapters of silence mark my ongoing quest to, as Nono sought, “find silence full of voices.” These compositions are intended for solo studio listening or can be heard in tandem with back- and foreground sounds, preferably from everyday life.

Unlike most of my music, this piece is meant to be heard only on compact disc. A limited edition album of this found soundscape is available from reductive music.
