Silence does not exist

Silence does not exist

As quiet as we are, for more sections of city noise, however locked we are, we will never be in complete silence since we will always hear the noise of the air, of some dog barking in the distance, of an airplane, etc.Could it be that silence does not really exist? This is what is happening...

The term silence according to the SAR is: State in which there is no noise or no voice is heard.

Nowhere completely isolated and staying static we can find silence and this proved it John Cage (1912-1992) during an experiment in Harvard en 1952 inside a room anechoic acoustics These types of rooms are made with the purpose of break the sound that occurs within this, is also completely isolated from outside noise.

The experience of John Cage inside this room made him reflect on the silence in a thorough way, since during his stay in the room a few seconds after believing he was completely silent he began to listen to his own organism as his heart, his intestines , the circulation of his blood ... He couldn't help but make no noise!

This experiment confirms that there is always sound and that there is no total silence. That same year he took inspiration from this experience and the white squares of Rauschenberg to compose one of his most recognized works 4'33 " which is also known as the silent piece. The piece consists of three movements and 4 minutes with 33 seconds of silence in the score.

4 ”33 was intended for people in the audience to focus on the act of listening, thinking about themselves and not what the musician expressed through their performance. According to Cage, "the purpose is fulfilled if people learn to listen." Surely somewhere in this universe there is absolute silence but surely there will never be someone to really appreciate it.

Well, we can add the noise to the list of perpetual things that we will never be able to overcome such as the speed of light, time, rhythm ... What other things occur to you that exist like this? Had you noticed this idea? Tell us what you think.
