Silence is hard to find. Just try. Go to a mountaintop, toss your phone, take out your earbuds. The wind rustles through trees, water rushes down cliffs, birds call out to one another.
To prove the point, University of Arkansas – Fort Smith professor, Dr. Steve Hasarik, plans to start the digital music concert, Harpsichord 3D, on January 30 at 3:00 p.m., with four minutes and thirty-three seconds of nothing more than a man sitting at a piano, a clock above him counting down the seconds. But after that the action begins. Dance troupes take the stage, computer-generated images flash on screen, harpsichords play, and the audience sits in awe for more than half an hour.
