On The Importance Of Silence

Posted by AJ Harbison at 1:05 pm

A few days ago Slate Magazine published an article on silence in music (classical music, specifically), and how it can be just as important or sometimes even more important than notes. It’s a good survey, and best of all, it includes sound clips so you can hear all the examples it talks about. Worth a read. Check it out:
