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?
