Dear List,
I received an inquiry from someone asking about the perception of

 "How is silence perceived in a musical context? Is
 the listener's 'attitude' changed when a rest unfolds in
 music? or, are sounds and silences so linked in music to
 enable us to distinguish the two?"

I am not able to further clarify her questions, so I offer them as
received. Any thoughts?
