Silence Screams

In the moments before and after anything dissolves or arises, is Silence. Often, Silence is a blessing and a boon, but it can also represent a seemingly inhuman detachment. Sometimes Silence conveys respite, and on other occasions produces profound disconnection. As much as communication is about what isn’t said as is said, and the strongest statements are worded the most concisely, in some circumstances there is nothing louder than Silence. Sometimes it feels like a constant struggle just to make peace with Silence.

By Lowen & Navarro, from their 2004 album All the Time in the World, during which Eric Lowen was diagnosed with ALS. Much of this album references coming to terms with the tragedy.
