The Silent Compositions were made by not being listened to. The composer used no type of audio monitoring in their creation, relying only on their eyes, their sense of time, texture and waveform shape. They were made using free software packages, sample libraries from various long dormant websites and a Yamaha DX21. These compositions had their lengths set, layers planned, their mixing and editing also done without the use of the ear.
The aim was to, by denying the most accessible aspect of music, its audibility, possibly create a collection of pieces which were wildly divergent from one another in terms of feeling, depth and sound. Also, there was a desire to, by this denial, achieve a music wholly divorced from influence or genre. Another aim was to let a different type of thought dictate how the pieces sounded, organs and impulses not normally associated with direct musicality.
