I don't think music is an off-topic in a list about... silence.
Not only is silence an unseparable part of music (sometimes it *is*
music, like in Cage's 4'33"), but it is necessary so that music can be
perceived like something interesting, something different protruding
from the background of mundane noise. The contradiction arises when
music--the so called pipemusic--becomes the background. Then something
seems to be lacking when one really wants to listen to some music, and
that's the culture medium for the"decibel dance"!
Regarding sound files, I'd love to listen to them but I've some trouble with
my sound card, so that will have to wait for a while.
