"And there, happened something I could not have foreseen, amid all noises echoed a brief moment of silence."

A Moment Of Silence is a piece of soundscaping, the audio portrait of a contradiction. Like the original recording location – under a highway bridge where it crosses over a promenade along one of Berlin’s canal – A Moment of Silence is stuck between contemplation and discomfort. The noise emitted by the cars passing overhead is almost unbearable but, when it goes away, when silence comes, that silence becomes as unbearable.

A Moment Of Silence is conductive to meditation; it is appeasing but stressful, permanently disturbing. It is somehow an invitation to immersion.
