Is silence a distant memory, something that's passed into legend? Does silence unnerve and seem unnatural?
Opening with John cage's experimental composition, 4'33', 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence, 'In Pursuit of Silence' is an intriguing, meditative and contemplative study of silence, another world that haunts and fascinates, a refuge from the sensory onslaught of modern life.
