Ontological Silence

John Forget

2011, 06:30 minutes, colour, English


Silence at the end of keyboard melody rehearsal, Aldous Huxley's "Music At Night", tobogganing, sleeping cats, classically trained pipe-organist friend Paul Jessen and "Vision Of Christ Phoenix" all figure into this lo-fi + silent only at intervals meditation - just not necessarily in that order - the nature and significance of silence especially relating to musicality before, during and after - so challenging to verbalize.
