Silentium is an original composition that incorporates a new approach to music by using silence together with a string quartet as well as images that represent silence. The composer supports the concept that there is no such state as absolute silence, only personal interpretations and perceptions of it. The author also presents various uses of silence in selected disciplines and forms in order to introduce the reader to the general concept of the piece. Subsequently, he analyzes the form and the compositional techniques of the work. One of the main innovative features of Silentium is its ability to introduce other composers to this fresh approach on silence, as they are encouraged to expand the existing composition, according to their personal interpretations of silence.
