“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is Music” (Aldous Huxley). After silence is a cycle of works written for piano and electronics exploring the perception of resonance in relation to sound as a quest for silence. The preposition after indicates both a temporal condition and a search for deeper states of consciousness.

After silence (1) was inspired by a text I wrote in 2005: after silence / space mirrors / reflecting / invisible sound. / away from… / I stand motionless / listening / through the barely audible.
