The 9-based tuning pianoconcerts
are organised by "Divine 9 Music" since end of January 2015.
Sounds of Silence now works with the new 12-based Krystal tuning.
"We can emphasize the quality of tone and silence. We can be attentive to the space within and between the notes we produce as musicians. (...) The temptation is to speed up the tempo, improvise in the open spaces, or cut the note short in anticipation of the next note. As musicians, rather than dazzle the listener with our brilliance and baffle them with our BS, we can bring the listener into the open spaces of music and the beauty of tone, this is where one finds the healing, healthy gestures."
