(FOR BEST RESULTS WATCH WITH HEADPHONES AND FULL VOLUME, as track contains a lot of bass)

True silence can never be achieved, unless of course we lock ourselves up in a vacuum. Chances are, an opportunity like that does not come about for everyone. Even when we lie still, sounds that seemed dormant seem to writhe to the surface, sounds like you're breathing, you're heartbeat, life coursing inside of you. This project tries to capture the 'Sound of Silence' in way that can be presented to the human ear.

I was inspired to pursue this direction because it fascinated me to no end that true silence could not be achieved. Spending hours just sitting in a room really gave me time to stop and listen to things I would have otherwise missed out. I wanted to be able to capture this sound, and have a tangible piece of evidence related to my investigation.

The soundtrack is composed of my heartbeat, layered distorted and sped up to increase tension. The sound is meant to emulate what the dancer's body sounds like as she practices her routine over and over again. I hope you enjoy!
