aworks :: new american classical music:

"Organ and Silence is a two-hour organ work (the Wesley Roberts recording is about an hour), distinguished by lengthy periods of silence. A set of notes or a phrase will be followed by complete silence. It might be a short pause or it might be say a 10 second gap and then another musical phrase. All sixteen movements follow that same pattern of short musical fragment, pause, then repeat for three or four minutes."
