Tickle the Cricket

“The piercing sounds of the crickets create the carpet to this silent landscape, outlining its contours in the dark. They sing all day but shine at night. They are the metaphor for all silence as the base-tone of sound that is only heard when you listen. ... Crickets are the cornerstone of silence that gets uncovered in the night. The tension of listening to such silence leads into the compositional act, producing the landscape before me in my embedded parity. ... The sound of the crickets announces the silence of the imminent and remains silent when all else starts cranking up the volume.”

[Voegelin, 2010]
