Today I learned that a composer named Erwin Schulhoff wrote a completely tacet piece as the third movement of his “Fünf Pittoresken" for piano. His piece pre-dates John Cage’s 4’33” by 30 years, and is actually much more suggestive as to how the silence should be shaped, containing really complex rhythmic rests and lines to the rests. His successful career was cut short due to the Rise of the Nazi Regime in Germany and their strict rules on music, and because of this, his pieces are very rarely played or referenced to.

that feeling when you listen to a song with good heaphones for the first time and suddenly you notice 7 new instruments, a child singing harmonies in the background, and you’re just sitting there wide eyed and in love with the song all over again
