“Subsilence” was recorded live at Kill The Silence Festival in Macao on 29 Jun 2013. It is a live improvisation on Chapman Stick with some extreme physical manipulation, huge amount of feedback and distortion. It is a meditative pursuit of sound on a pure physical level. It is believed that the concept of silence only exists beyond the threshold of extreme sonic overload.
