Silence is dedicated to presenting sounds and musical practices that are diverse, challenging, sustainable and accessible through concerts, workshops and improvisation sessions. Silence serves as an incubator for practitioners and listeners alike.
Silence is unbiased in regard to genre, culture, class, and tradition; we foster risk-taking, innovation and experimentation in all forms of music and sound, as well as other artistic expressions presented in the space.
Silence is and will remain a fully accessible space.

Upcoming Music Highlights
Silence Presents: Near East
November 23, 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Near East invents their own world-music convention, by bringing together several world music traditions. The Inception of Near East’s Music begins in, Maqam and Iqa’ of the Middle East and Greece, gives way to the raga and tala concepts of North and South India ultimately evolving into group improvisation. From those foundations, Near East harvests a fresh sound, familiar yet surprising. The roots simply cross – pollinate on their own, evolving without additives, without taking anything away.
