I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Cancelling music theory tuition (not the reading music shite etc, but the theory as in the 'musical truth') and not recording in my studio (that means going to bed with a bus book at 9.30pm approx).

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Here at The Quiet Club we marked No Music Day by going for a soundwalk around Bristol.

Before we set off we observed a minute s silence and looked at some Tranquil Maps of England (CPRE) and the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE). Then we discussed the following quotations:

Music goes both ways. You make yourself heard and you listen to others. Yehudi Menuhin

I can t hear myself think.

Silence is twice as fast backwards.

You have the right to remain silent.

A little with quiet is the only dyet. George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Amplification is the curse of civilisation - Ivor Cutler

When I do die I shall be glad to get away from loud pop music and motor cars. - Ivor Cutler

I don't like noise. In fact one of the reasons I don't like church ministers is because they're uptight and make these special noises when they speak. - Ivor Cutler

Tranquillity lubricates the soul; musak destroys it. - Spike Milligan

"Silence is the only phenomenon today that is useless. It does not fit into the world of profit and utility; it simply is. It seems to have no other purpose; it cannot be exploited. - Max Picard - The Nature of Silence, Harvill Press, London, 1948 translation.

The song of the earth is never dead John Keats

Poetry is the song of the earth - Jonathan Bate

In those days the world teemed, the people multiplied, the world bellowed like a wild bull, and the great god was aroused by the clamour. Enlil heard the clamour and he said to the gods in council, "The uproar of mankind is intolerable and sleep is no longer possible by reason of the babel." So the gods agreed to exterminate mankind.

- The Epic of Gilgamesh

The twentieth century is, among other things, the Age of Noise. Physical noise, mental noise and noise of desire - we hold history's record for all of them. And no wonder, for all of the resources of our almost miraculous technology have been thrown into the current assault against silence. That most popular and influential of all recent inventions, the radio, is nothing but a conduit through which a prefabricated din can flow into our homes. And this din goes far deeper of course, than the ear-drums. It penetrates the mind, filling it with a babel of distractions - news items, mutually irrelevant bits of information, blasts of corybantic or sentimental music, continually repeated doses or drama that bring no catharsis, but merely create a craving for daily or even hourly enemas...Spoken or printed, broadcast over the ether or on wood-pulp, all advertising copy has but one purpose - to prevent the will from ever achieving silence. Desirelessness is the condition of deliverance and illumination. The condition of an expanding and technolo! gically progressive system of mass production is universal craving. Advertising is the organised effort to extend and intensify craving - to extend and intensify, that is to say, the workings of that force, which (as all the saints and teachers of all the higher religions have always taught) is the principal cause of suffering and wrong-doing and the greatest obstacle between the human soul and its divine Ground.

The Perrenial Philosophy

by Aldous Huxley

Chatto and Windus, 1946

from Chapter 15 Silence, p. 225.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: it is time for a change; music listening (like anything) can become a thoughtless habit and it is good to have greater consciousness of why we do what we do and what we truly desire.

Ben Blohowiak

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: In the future I will observe no music day because it to truly appreciate, invent, make and play music we have to learn to listen. This perhaps is the most important art in any creatives make up and we have forgotten it.

I will force all those who work for, associated with our music organisation to observe this day as a sanctity so that it forces people to once again listen.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I failed to observe music day as I didn't know it existed. BUT I will do so in the future.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: a big boy told me to

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Falling out with my wife (achieved) because I switched that cunt Wogan and his trite and asinine "broadcasting" off the radio when he started singing along to "Sloop John B"; not being able to listen to music at work anyway (achieved); thinking about how I can learn to play my new lap steel without being lectured by a music nazi in an "instructional" video (ongoing); avoiding conversation with people who think they know what music they like ongoing).

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Maybe Im past it, but music just leaves me with a feeling of empty alienation-the mainstream wears the clothes & spoutes the rhetoric of the subversive, and false prophets everywhere are given authenticity by a savvy media that controls the zeitgeist..a racoon eyed desolation angel once said that all rebellion is corporate owned (shortly before he himself signed for Sony), but he also said somthing that echoes todays vapidity, and offers hope.."It takes a genius to make a fake the standard by which we come to judge the genuine"
Im observing this day because I still want to believe in the myth of rock, but accept in the pit of my stomach that its all over..PS ask yourself if Oasis ever mattered, & why the buying public still handjobs their feeble scrawls at paunched out rebellion..x

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not listening to any records that have inspired me at any point in my life, not tuning in & dropping out to the 24/7 audio visual bilge spewed forth from MTV,VH-1 & and other assorted mindf**k channels.NOT reading the NME or Kerrap! (but who REALLY does anyway anymore?),Trying to avoid seeing or hearing Zane Lowe because he is just WRONG and is to John Peel what Geoff Horsfield is to Pele..
