I am amazed that no one until now has written a few words about
"Cartographies of Silence", a five-part sequence that leaves one breathless
after reading. The point-counterpoint affinities, the paradoxes and the
obstacles of words versus music create the primary leitmotif that sparkles
endless analyses, as the "conversation [that] begins with a lie" repeatetly
bounces against "[t]he technology of silence." But of "silence not absence
// of words or music or even /raw sounds". It is the "silence [that]
strips bare", that stretches "like skin over meanings" as two people sit
close, talking until dawn: the dawn of deeper meaning, of deeper music to
somehow alter the "sounds of silence".
