Silence in music, anyone?

I removed a number of readings I had initially thought (ha ha) that we could get in this week; although I took them off the syllabus "proper," I include links to them here, in case anyone's interested in exploring further the idea of "silence in music":

Jonathan Foer. Seven Attempted Escapes from Silence (libretto).

Karim Haddad. First Attempted Escape From Silence: Tunnels.

Thelonious Monk. 'Round Midnight (Piano Solo).

John Edgar Wideman."The Silence of Thelonious Monk." Callaloo 22, 3 (Summer 1999): 550-557.
