Sound of Silence is a downloadable pause. An experimental podcast that records the silence that arises between two people.
Only 100 episodes will be recorded with, each lasting around 180 seconds and centring around 2 minutes of shared silence recorded face to face with a special guest.
At the end of the experiment the combined 200 minutes of silence will be transformed into an interactive public gallery exhibit.
