Alga Marghen releasing compilation of silent music

Italian label Alga Marghen is releasing an anthology of silent music. Sound Of Silence includes silent works by Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Sly & The Family Stone, Robert Wyatt, John Denver, Whitehouse, Orbital, Crass, Afrika Bambaataa, Yves Klein and others. Confused? The album is described as presenting silences as surfaces – all artefacts from the various record processes are retained. Some are missing tracks, things replaced at the last minute for political reasons, and mysterious 7"s meant to give dancers a chance to catch their breath. Comes with instructions to play loud.
