  1. Silo Music is the overall term of an acoustic phenomena which might occur during the discharge of a silo. These frequencies can cause heavy damages in the silo structure and its surroundings and challenge scientists worldwide.
    There are hardly any recordings of silo music probably because “the noise problem” is deemed to be solved rather than to be heard.

    My text Silo Music is the notation of these unforeseeable sounds and is composed with the influence of the acoustic descriptions written by scientists. The notation was the starting point for the two Swiss musicians to sound the text within a free interpretation.
