Silence

Silent Meditations

GSE001
Release Notes
  • 20 minutes of complete silence on each side of the album
  • Backed 900% of goal on Kickstarter from buyers in 12 countries
  • Note: this does not require a record player to be fully enjoyed. Technically, it doesn’t even require this record

This new vinyl record is completely silent. It features a 20-minute track on each side. You can use it for meditation or put it on whenever you want to enjoy twenty minutes of silence. (At 45 RPM you can access the hidden feature, a shorter 15-minute meditation.) This was a father-son Kickstarer that took off, passing 900% of it original goal with backers from a dozen countries. It’s a serious project, and in its seriousness we also hope it creates some levity. The record is a reminder that silence is valuable, and it can be enjoyed. To purchase a record and play a silent meditation is intentionally humorous. Silence, like meditation, can feel severe, even punitive. Having a silent record might remind you that’s not always the case.
