Silence speaks, music listens

Silence speaks, music listens - Observing through sound and silence

The ability to simply observe oneself in any situation reveals our almost continuous identification with the body and the mind. During this concert, the silence between the improvised pieces will give an unusual opportunity to witness this process even more clearly. Together, each of us will experience this awareness by a mixture of sound and silence, sometimes gentle, sometimes provocative, sometimes serious and sometimes not... pearls of sound on strings of silence.
